R is for Ressurrection

Easter Sunday is almost here. We are in the midst of Holy Week and Holy Thursday is today. We are about to celebrate Jesus' Resurrection from the dead. When the women then some of the apostles visit Jesus' tomb, they had no idea what they would experience. They expected to anoint his body, but instead found an empty tomb with the stone rolled away.  "Why do you look for the living among the dead," asked an angel.

Easter Sunday we will be celebrating these moments...and more. For it wasn't just His Resurrection, but his defeat of sin and death. This was the fulfillment of God's promise to redeem us and make us able to enter Heaven once again. God has found a way!

This Sunday - celebrate and thank Jesus for his gift. He gave us LIFE. Not just any life - but eternal life!

An especially worthy topic for 'R' in light of the season which honors He Who is the Light.
