The long, penitential season of Lent is over. Christ has died on the cross and risen again. He has conquered sin and destroyed death, and by doing so given us life and redemption!
Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!!!!
And on this joyous morning, I give you some Bible verses to reflect on for Easter:
"Jesus said [to her], "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.""
"But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us."
"But if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him. For we know that Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. The death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus."
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy we have been born anew to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and to an inheritance which is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you...In this you rejoice, though now for a little while you may have to suffer various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith, more precious than gold which though perishable is tested by fire, may redound to praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ."
-1 Peter 1:3-4, 6-7
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him."
"I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly."
Have a wonderful Easter! Give praise and thanks to God, eat ham, and enjoy your chocolate bunnies!
