I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.
We were so blessed to attend church
and worship our risen Savior.
In the afternoon we had lunch with family
and our traditional Easter egg hunt.
AW brought home friends from college.
It was great to have them here to share in the celebration.
I Corinthians 15:20-24
Christ really has been raised from the dead.
He is the first of all those who will rise.
Death came because of what a man did.
Rising from the dead also comes because of what a man did.
Because of Adam, all people die.
So because of Christ, all will be made alive.
But here is the order of events.
Christ is the first of those who rise from the dead.
When he comes back, those who belong to him will be raised.
Then the end will come.
Christ will destroy all rule, authority and power.
He will hand over the kingdom to God the Father.
The resurrection is a reality.
If it were not true, our faith would be futile and all hope gone.
He is risen, He is risen indeed!
