Glory be to God! Jesus is ALIVE!
Matthew 27:64 (KJV)
64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
Mark 16:6 (KJV)
6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
John 20:1 (KJV)
20 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.
Acts 1:3 (KJV)
3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (KJV)
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
1 Timothy 3:16 (KJV)
16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Jesus is our example for all things in life:
He is our Comforter; He is our Strength; He is our Peace; He is our Hope; He is our Healer; He is our Mender; He is our Joy . . . He meets our every need . . . always! He died for your sin and for mine—rising from the dead—so that we may live for all eternity with Him if we obey his commandments. Jesus IS God, manifest in the flesh. Jesus will never leave us nor forsake us. He IS the Creator of the Universe, and He loves YOU! That’s right! Will you too, love Him? Is He not worthy? I think so!

By Gerald R Hill
He walked throughout the Holy Land
Amid much sin and strife;
Teaching Love and Fellowship
And a new way of life.
He healed the sick, made whole the lame,
Gave hope to those who were lost.
He called the sinner to repent,
No matter what the cost.
Though many came to him in faith
Believing what they heard,
Many more would fear His name
And try to stop his words.
He feared not scorn or ridicule
Nor threats from evil men.
For He was called by higher law
The Gospel to defend.
He knew in time, He’d give His life
And pay the price for Sin.
No matter what they did to Him,
He knew they could not win.
But [dying] for redemption’s sake
Was hard for Him to bear.
The weight of all the world’s sins
Left Him in deep despair.
He came alone to kneel in prayer
In the Garden of Gethsemane.
With anguish pleading from his soul
“Take this burden away from Me.”
Although He knew the world’s sins
Were His to bear alone.
“Lift this cup from Me”, he said,
“but Thy will, not Mine, be done.
Betrayed by one who held his trust,
Who’s faith had gone amiss.
For thirty pieces of silver coin,
Betrayed Him with a kiss.
Brought before a judgment seat
Devised by mortal men.
They knew not what they did that day
Would fulfill a higher plan.
Beaten, scourged and ridiculed,
Then forced to bear His cross.
They took him up to Calvary
And nailed him to that cross.
That He was surely the Son of God
His captors never knew.
“Forgive them Father”, He cried out,
“for they know not what they do”.
He gave His mortal life that day
Upon Mount Calvary.
He paid the price required of Him
For such as you and me.
But death alone would not prevail,
It was only from this earth.
New life would come in three days hence
And hope would have new birth.
No greater joy could we desire
And the feeling which it gives.
Or want for a greater blessing
than to know our Savior lives.
