“WHERE THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD LIVES”
He is Risen...
A Fresh Start
New Life. It’s part of this magical season of the year, and it’s visible everywhere. From the first buds popping out on branches that have stood dormant through the long, cold winter; to the early green shoots of flowers.
But there’s also the reality of another life. The Scriptures tell us that our very first parents came into a world brimming with newly created life and unfettered access to the Creator Himself. But deception produced disobedience, and death entered into the human experience. The beauty of new life was tarnished.
How could it be restored? The Creator Himself took on human flesh and joined us in our journey through the bleak wasteland of death. He lived for us and ultimately died for us so that we could once again experience new life.
That’s what this Easter season is truly about. Being restored from death to new life. Our disobedience was covered by His sacrifice on the cross and His victory over the grave.
Paul wrote,”For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of GOD is eternal life in CHRIST JESUS our LORD.”
As we trust in what JESUS has done for us , we find that death is overcome and life reigns again. JESUS said, ” Whoever hears my word and believes Him who sent me has eternal life.”
Through this new life, GOD begins the process of creating within us a capacity to love as HE loves.
For those who not yet met Him, may you find in Him the true life your heart is longing for.
“Easter Is about…being restored from death to new life”
