Jesus says, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies, and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" John 11: 25-26. I pray you do believe that Jesus sacrificially laid down His life by shedding His innocent blood. Have faith in His resurrection power for the forgiveness of our sins, life and salvation. Purposely dedicate your life this Easter to service our Risen Lord in love with power coming from the Holy Spirit. Because Jesus lives, I also will live. Fix your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfector of our faith. Have a blessed Easter!
To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Amen. (Ro. 16:27)
