because He lives.

the reason this verse is oh, so true is because of what Jesus did on the cross 2,000 years ago. He died a cruel, horrible death - but what is so amazing (and this is WHY we celebrate today and everyday, really!) is that He did not remain dead in the grave. He rose again just like he said he would! this morning at church we sang one of my favorite hymns and i've been humming it all afternoon:

because he lives, i can face tomorrow.
because he lives, all fear is gone.
because i know, he holds the future.
and life is worth the living, just because he lives.

Happy Easter, friend!
Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!

"He is not here, for He has risen, as He said!"
(Matthew 28:6)

much love.
