Christ is Risen!

He is Risen Indeed!

No matter what is going on in our lives right now and how confused we might be, it is the significance of what we celebrate today, Easter Sunday, that reminds us how truly blessed we are! And it reminds me of how small I am in the scope of humanity and God's plan for the world. It is only when I feel humbled and grateful for Christ's sacrifice of His life for my own that I begin to have the right attitude and mindset. We pray that God would show us daily where He wants us to minister to others and how we can take place in HIS work and ministry and not our own.


All thanks, honor, praise and glory be to our Savior, Jesus Christ! I will leave with the lyrics to one of my favorite hymns, "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross."
 When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
on which the Prince of Glory died; 
 my richest gain I count but loss, 
 and pour contempt on all my pride. 

 Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, 
 save in the death of Christ, my God; 
 all the vain things that charm me most, 
 I sacrifice them to his blood. 

 See, from his head, his hands, his feet, 
 sorrow and love flow mingled down. 
 Did e'er such love and sorrow meet, 
 or thorns compose so rich a crown. 
 
Were the whole realm of nature mine, 
 that were an offering far too small; 
 love so amazing, so divine, 
 demands my soul, my life, my all. 
 
My life, my all for the King that died for me and rose again?!
 I think I definitely get the better end of the deal!
