Here is a joyful and humbling reminder of why I celebrate easter.
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
He will swallow up death in victory: and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces. Isaiah 25:8
And I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, thou art my people; and they shall say, thou art my God. Hosea 2:23
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus Phillipians 4:7
Christ is fulfillment of the promises of God. Happy Easter, He is risen indeed!
