Resurrection Sunday


An empty tomb
A risen Savior
A great reason for rejoicing!

As I sit here this Saturday, contemplating all the beauty that God has created in my small part of the world, it's hard not to be thankful for all the wonderful gifts that He has given. The most precious gift being that of His one and only Son, my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

I know that it's easy to get caught up in all the fun merchandise that the stores put out every Easter, and I'm not saying that it's wrong to celebrate this way, but I wonder how many of you really know what we are supposed to be celebrating on Easter Sunday. It's not the Easter bunny or brightly colored eggs, or even family get-togethers. It's the truth that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, to save us, but it doesn't stop there. He also rose from the grave and was seen by a great many people before He rose to Heaven. No other religious leader has ever been able to make this same claim. Their tombs are full of their dried bones, but Jesus' tomb is EMPTY. He rose to Heaven on the third day...just as He said he would. "Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen!..." these are the words the angel spoke to the women that came to the tomb after He had risen (Luke 24:5-6)

"Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near. " (Isaiah 55:6) There will come a day when this period of grace will end - seek Him now.

We live in a world full of people that are constantly searching for something to fill a void in their lives - possessions, relationships, success, and even religion. Narcissism and immorality are rampant. None of these things can fill that void, only God can fill it. Each one of us is born with a "God sized" hole in our hearts. My hope is that you will all find a good Bible believing church and truly seek the Lord. Let Him fill that void.

As Jesus said to the woman at the well "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die..."
(John 11:25)

Have a blessed Resurrection Sunday.
