“Celebrate Our Lord’s Resurrection”
Because He Lives all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future;
And life is worth the living just because He lives.
(Because I live, you also will live. John 14:19)
Romans 5:6-11 NKJV
“But God demonstrates His own Love toward us In that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us…we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the reconciliation.”
The cross is at the heart of what we believe. Our Holy God could not have a personal relationship with Adam and Eve—or with us, their descendants, until all sin was paid for.
At the cross…the Lamb of God was sacrificed on our behalf, and sin’s debt was settled. Jesus Christ, who was fully God and fully man, met that requirement through His perfect life and therefore served as our sacrificial Lamb. (John 1:29) Christ died for us in order to meet God’s just demand. Without Christ’s blood, which was poured out for us, we would be like condemned prisoners with no hope.
(Excerpts from In Touch, April 2005)
…You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my heart.
Be joyful, the Lord is alive!
