on this day that the Lord has made, i pray that you are well. also, i hope that everyone was able to attend an easter church service today. there is just something about easter that is almost like a new years day for christians. now before you laugh too hard, it's true. at new years, you are able to almost look back at the previous year and decide what things you would like to keep, and what things you would like to make better (resolutions). at easter, we look back at the year and remember all that Christ has done for us, and we look forward to what He has in store to make us more like Him. so this easter, don't forget what a gift God has given you, and take time this week to thank Him for it. that is the difference between new years and easter, new years is all about us and how we react to ourselves, and easter is all about God and how we react to His grace.
luke 24:1-12 is my favorite resurrection retelling of all four gospels. verses 5 and 6 say, "why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen." so as you remember God's gift on the cross, also remember that He is no longer dead, but alive preparing a place for us until His return!
He is risen!
