And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. (1st Corinthians 5:15 NIV)

This is the day that the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it. Today is Resurrection Sunday the day that sets us apart from other religions. Jesus not only lived and died, but he rose again on the third day. Because Christ resurrected, we are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.  I am so grateful that Jesus took away my sins because I am guilty as charged. Every day I sin and fall short of the glory of God in thought, word, and deed, but if anyone sins, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.  I am grateful for the victory and an opportunity to proclaim the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ. Despite people turning away from their faith, there are people all over the world that are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus the Christ. This Sunday morning let us sing and worship the way we would at a ball game, at a wedding, a birthday party, a cultural carnival. Let us render a joyful noise because we were bought with a price and because Jesus lives; we now have a new life in Christ.  Remain encouraged, and God bless you always.
