A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
“And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.”
As we begin a new week we are in what is called Easter week.Just as it is with Christmas concerning the birth of Christ there are a lot of false myths associated with the dying and the resurrection of our Lord.Most of those that read this “thought” know what Easter season is all about.There may be some that get all wrapped up in the spirit of the season.Let’s keep in mind what the Bible teaches and not get all involved in the commerce part of this time of year.Next Sunday is Resurrection Sunday the day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.Because we are born sinners we must die for our sins (Gen. 2:17) but God so loved the world He sent His Son to live as a human so He could pay the wages of our sin.Jesus went to the cross and died there on the behalf a sinful humanity. (Rom. 5:6)Christ died for the ungodly. (Rom. 6:23)God’s gift to us is eternal life through His Son – Jesus.Let’s keep our thoughts on the real reason for this week—Jesus died and He rose from the dead.
Without God in our life – our life is one of no hope
