"I will never leave you nor forsake you!"
"Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever!"
"Thanks be to God Who gives us the victory through our Lord, Jesus Christ"
"If you will confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and will believe in your heart
that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9)
The distinguishing fact of the Christian religion is the Resurrection of Christ.
Christianity begins where religion ends....with the Resurrection of Christ.
Easter is neither a dogma of the church....nor a date on the calendar.
It is an Experience that can not be diagramed.
Where the Cross is a symbol of Love, the Empty Tomb is a symbol of Hope.
If you will let Him, He can turn:
~Emptiness into Fullness
~Fear into Courage
~Weakness into Strength
~Heartache into Joy
~Turmoil into Peace
~Dullness into Radiance
~Death into Life
If you haven't met Jesus, please do!
He is my Best Friend and He wants to be YOUR Best Friend, too!
Spring is a great time of the year. I'm glad that Easter is in the Springtime.
Of course, the results of the Christ of Easter are for:
Easter speaks of the freedom from the dead of winter, to new life.
Jesus indeed is not only our New Birth, but our New Life.
Kurt Kaiser speaks of this in his song, "Bring Back The Springtime".
We were privileged to meet him and hear him play this song at Falls Creek Baptist
Assembly here in Oklahoma.
'BRING BACK THE SPRINGTIME'
"When in the spring, the flowers are blooming bright and fair,
After the grey of winter's gone.
Once again the lark begins his tuning,
Back in the meadows of my heart.
Lord, to my heart bring back the springtime.
Take away the cold and dark of sin.
And, Oh refill me now, sweet Holy Spirit:
May I warm and tender be again.
Lord, make me like that stream that flows so cool and clear
Down from the mountains high above;
I will tell the world the wondrous story
Of the precious stream filled with your Love."
Please remember that anytime during the year...
God can help you to bring back the Springtime in your life.
Here is a study for you to use concerning the Resurrection and the Life.
