Alleluia! Christ is risen!

Today is a day to celebrate! A day to praise the Lord! Victory has been won. Death defeated, sin conquered.

Celebrating Jesus’ resurrection invigorates our hope, rejuvenates our spirit and gives us courage. As the hymn says “because He lives I can face tomorrow.” Whatever the future holds we have God holding us and that is enough, more than enough.

Because He lives I can face tomorrow
Because He lives all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living just because He lives

I can think of no better words to finish on than to quote from Romans.

This RESURRECTION LIFE you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously EXPECTANT, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?” God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who He is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what’s coming to us—an unbelievable inheritance! We go through exactly what Christ goes through. If we go through the hard times with him, then we’re certainly going to go through the good times with him! ” (Romans 8:15-17 Msg) 

Alleluia! He is risen indeed!
