Christ is Risen!


Happy Easter Everyone!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Because Jesus died for us and was resurrected, everyone who has ever lived on the earth will be resurrected: "But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive".

(Lesson 239 - The Resurrected Christ)
John 3:16; John 8:12; John 11:25; John 14:6; 1 Corinthians 15:2022

This Easter day I am deeply grateful for the profound gifts of the atonement and the resurrection.

Indeed, He is Risen (I hope it's ok to say that early!)

My best wishes for Easter blessings to you and yours!

Several days late, but Happy Easter! (The idea of Easter, of course, isn't restricted to a single day!)

Thanks everybody.

And Jaquandor, you are absolutely right. The blessing of the resurrection goes way beyond one day. Truth be known, I will continue to hold on to the sense of sacred celebration through Pascha and Bright week which my Orthodox pals observe and that's not till the end of April this year.
