Before I mention Easter below, I’d like to ask you all for a favor I know you’ll be happy to supply; Our good buddy, Imp, has been facing serious health challenges and I’d like you to pray for his patience, for wisdom for the doctors, and peace for his very loving wife, whom he adores. Keep him in your prayers….he’s a terrific guy and it’ll be good to get him well!
Jesus healed us all in His crucifixion and resurrection….if not for the resurrection, we’re wasting time being Christians! It’s pointless.
THIS ARTICLE is such a superb list of believable reasons for accepting the resurrection as a historical FACT…for strong believers and less strong believers alike…..please take a look.
We are healed in our hearts because of His Spirit which moves in, for the daily manifestations of that Spirit within us, for so many things. Especially, we are healed in our futures, in our redemption through HIM…..whether we live on earth or are taken to heaven, we live in Him. Eternally.
As I said last week, “Afraid? Of What? Afraid to see the Savior’s face, to hear His welcome, and to trace the glory gleam from wounds of grace? AFRAID OF WHAT?”
One of my favorite, and most meaningful, verses from the Bible is “Then he said to Jesus, ‘Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.’ And Jesus said to him, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in paradise.’” (Luke 23:39-43) All he had to say was “remember me..” showing he knew who Jesus was, and he was told he’d be in Heaven with Christ. Think about that for a minute!
From a beautiful hymn, O Sacred Head Now Wounded…my favorite verse:
3. What language shall I borrow
to thank thee, dearest friend,
for this thy dying sorrow,
thy pity without end?
O make me thine forever;
and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never
outlive my love for thee.
HAPPY EASTER, or RESURRECTION SUNDAY, as so many of you like to call it these days! I prefer the old fashioned, lovely Easter moniker!
Have a wonderful day…spend some time thanking Him for his sacrifice, for our HOPE.
