We Celebrate Christ’s Resurrection!

We stand in awe and praise for our Lord  Jesus. This is a special day as we celebrate Jesus’ victory over death. As our family has been reading the account in Matthew, I was struck by how Jesus felt before He went to the cross. He had feelings just like we have. “And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt” (Matthew 26:39).

Yet, Jesus was obedient even unto death. “And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross” (Philippians 2:8).

It’s an overwhelming thought that Jesus’ blood makes us white as snow. What a miracle. “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isaiah 1:18).

He is risen!

Happy Resurrection Sunday!

  2. Happy Resurrection Sunday to you! After attending church services, we enjoyed a wonderful day with our families (in addition to our nuclear family, both my husband’s extended family and mine – a full house with a lot of love) as we celebrated our Messiah. As the old hymn says, “Christ the Lord is risen today – alleluia!” Blessings to you and yours.

  3. A few years ago I watched a beautiful musical about Jesus and I watch it at Easter as a special treat. An amazing beautiful time of the year
