Happy Easter

  

Happy Easter, friends and family.

Christ is Risen! As I face the future, I have absolute certainty because…

“My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;

I dare not trust the sweetest frame,

But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

  On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;

All other ground is sinking sand,

  All other ground is sinking sand.”

Because He died in our place, taking your penalty and mine for all our failures, muck and shortcomings, and because He rose from the grave, proving He’d conquered it, He removed our greatest threat. We can, repenting and placing the weight of our life’s trust on Him, now rise to eternal life too. 

Everything else fades to grey. Nothing else in life can be more important. 

Christ is Risen! Joy and Peace.
