Happy Resurrection Day

The Cross

April 19, 2019

John 19:17 & 18 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Judas Iscariot

April 16, 2019

He walked with Jesus. He saw the miracles. He was trusted enough to handle the money. Others did not see him as evil. JUDAS. A name that even today we think of betrayal. Greed, for 30 pieces of silver he was willing to betray the ONE who loved him.

We wonder how he could do such a horrible thing and yet, do we betray Jesus with our attitude, our indifference or our sin? When Jesus told the disciples that one would betray Him, each one asked, “Is it I?”

Let us ask ourselves, do I betray my Savior, Jesus, in any way? If so let us ask His forgiveness had love Him as He loved us.

Matthew 26:25

Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.

Palm Sunday

April 14, 2019

Is Jesus you King? Not only on Palm Sunday but always. A few days later these very people who honored Him with Palm branches, cried out crucify Him!

Where is Your Focus?

April 13, 2019

Easter is a week away and the question today is, Where is your focus? When we go shopping do we see symbols of Jesus resurrection or a huge display of Easter baskets, chocolates and jelly beans? Unfortunately, it is hard to find anything that honors the true meaning of the Easter, Jesus is alive!!

Celebrating with fun, food and family is great and there is nothing wrong with that, as long as our focus is on Jesus. Let’s be sure our children and grandchildren know and understand that Jesus died, was buried and three days later HE AROSE!!

Matthew 28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

A Favorite Easter Hymn

March 29, 2018

During the Easter season of 1874, while having his devotions one evening, Robert Lowry was impressed with the events associated with Christ’s resurrection, especially with these words recorded in Luke 24:6, 7—He is not here, but is risen.

Soon Robert Lowry found himself seated at the little pump organ in the parlor of his home. And in a very spontaneous fashion, the words and music of “Christ Arose” gave expression to the thoughts that had been uppermost in his mind.

The hymn was published the following year and has been an inspirational favorite with God’s people ever since.

–Kenneth W. Osbeck

Christ Arose

(1) Low in the grave He lay,

Jesus, my Savior!

Waiting the coming day,

Jesus, my Lord!

CHO: Up from the grave He arose,

With a mighty triumph o’er His foes;

He arose a victor from the dark domain,

And He lives forever with His saints to reign;

He arose! He arose!

Hallelujah! Christ arose!

(2) Vainly they watched His bed,

Jesus, my Savior!

Vainly they sealed the dead,

Jesus my Lord!

(3) Death could not keep his prey,

Jesus my Savior!

He tore the bars away,

Jesus, my Lord!

Preparing for Easter

March 23, 2018

Easter is a little over a week away and many are getting ready. The stores are full of candy, clothes and decorations for the Easter celebrations but very little if any have anything pointing to the true meaning of Easter. The death, burial and resurrection of The Lord and Savior, Jesus. As we prepare for time with family and friends for Easter, let us remember the true reason why we celebrate. Jesus resurrection is proof that there is life after death and we can be sure of eternal life if we accept Jesus as our Savior.

2 Timothy 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

He is Risen!

Pilate 

April 12, 2017

Pilate tried to prove his innocence by washing his hands, but his sin could not be taken away by washing. The only thing that can wash away sin is the blood of Jesus and trusting in His death, burial and resurrection. Pilate was guilty of helping to send Jesus to the cross, but God used him to fulfill prophecy.

Matthew 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
