Easter...the super bowl for Christians.

This is the day that I am always reminded of how wonderful it is to be loved by God. He decided to come to earth, robe himself in flesh, be born in trough, and walk this earth as a man a radical rabbi. He submitted himself to the will of his heavenly Father. He was beaten, the skin from his body was ripped off him, a crown of thrones was given to him. He took it all willing and for me. He was nailed to a cross and on that cross his heart exploded for me. He thought about me while he was dying. He never wanted me to be on that cross. He died; he descended into hell on that third day he arose again from his grave. And when He arose from the grave He put death in that same grave.

I have eternal life. I will never need to know what hell looks like….because he paid my wages in desperate places…and I am thankful. Thankful for life I have received from him and thankful for the life I can share with others.
Lets us not forgot the great debut he paid for us. Let’s be thankful and full of hope and faith.

I am thankful he did not leave me to battle death on my own. I get to spend eternity with him….with no more more sorrow…no more tears. No more wholes in my heart, no more doubting, no more wondering…

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son .So that who so every believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Love is the message he brought to us. He showed us that when you love some one you lay down your life for them…and you never ask for anything in return. His love is the " no-strings attached" kind of love.His love is a powerful thing. It brings healing, redemption, wholeness and life. Life everlasting….

I love him with every fiber of my being.We have our good times and our bads times.( as you can see by my last post). I know when He tells me “I love you more than life itself” he means it. He loves me….and I am thankful for that. His love altered the universe and it altered me.

He has risen, He has risen indeed!
