Because Jesus lives, so can we!

“The angel spoke to the women: “There is nothing to fear here. I know you’re looking for Jesus, the One they nailed to the cross. He is not here. He was raised, just as he said. Come and look at the place where he was placed.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭28:5-6‬ ‭MSG‬‬

This is the rest of the story;

“Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their own sinful selves. They have given up their old selfish feelings and the evil things they wanted to do. We get our new life from the Spirit, so we should follow the Spirit.”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:24-25‬ ‭NCV‬‬

The promise of eternal life:

And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.”
– 1 John 5:11

Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.”
– John 5:24

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”
– John 3:16

May you have a blessed day reflecting on the sacrifice that God gave us through his son Jesus. Without him shedding his blood we would still be deep in sin with no hope. Facing external death. Praising God everyday, we serve a living God.
