Mark 16:18 Isaiah 26:19
"Lo, in the grave He Lay, Jesus, my Savior, He tore the bars away, Jesus ,
On Easter we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. It is a time of sadness
and joy. Sadness, because we remember the cross where He was crucified,
and joy, because He arose from the dead.
On a beautiful Easter Sunday morning, my Mother passed away. It was a
sad time for her six children who were gathered around her bedside, but a
joyous time for her as she went to be with Jesus. There would be no more
pain and suffering for her.
When we think of the agony of the cross we are saddened. Jesus gave His
life that we might have life eternal. And He arose from the grave to live
again, and He offers new life to us when we accept Him as our Savior.
Let's celebrate this Easter as we meet together , singing praises and hearing
the message of the cross and the risen Lord.
