After an A-MAZING Easter service at church, we came back to our house for an egg hunt and brunch. I also got to try out a few new recipes that were yummy. I’d definitely make them again.
Without the resurrection of Christ, our faith and hope would be in vain. ~1 Corinthians 15:14
However, Matthew 28:6 says, “He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.”
Oh, how I love EASTER!!
The Christian life is based on this truth: Jesus, the Messiah, King and Savior was crucified for our sins. But death could not keep Him down. HE HAS RISEN!! And therefore, those who are in Christ, will also rise one day!
That is the power and promise of RESURRECTION SUNDAY! Thank you, JESUS!
"Come, see the place where the Lord lay," with joy and gladness. He does not lie there now. Weep, when ye see the tomb of Christ, but rejoice because it is empty. Thy sin slew him, but his divinity raised him up. Thy guilt hath murdered him, but his righteousness hath restored him. Oh! he hath burst the bonds of death, he hath ungirt the cerements of the tomb, and hath come out more than conqueror, crushing death beneath his feet. Rejoice, O Christian, for he is not there—he is risen.”
- Charles Spurgeon
