Jesus Lives!


Alleluia! He is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!  These shouts of praise and joy  will be heard throughout Christian churches on Easter morning.  Easter!  What a glorious time for Christians, as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. It is a time of great joy, as we celebrate Christ’s resurrection and acknowledge and give thanks for our Saviour’s undying love for us, the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting!  

A dear family member of mine lost her only child, a son, a few months ago. His birthday will fall on Easter Sunday this year. Even tho Easter will hold bittersweet memories of her son’s birth and death, she will have the blessed assurance of his eternal life through Jesus, the Son of God. Because God gave His only Son to suffer on the cross for our redemption and by his glorious resurrection delivered us from the power of death, we don’t  have to say good-bye to loved ones. Instead, we can say, “till we meet again,” in the presence of our Saviour.

No matter what we are facing in our life’s walk, we don’t walk alone. He who loved us enough to die for us loves us enough to lift us up day by day until that time He welcomes us to our heavenly home.

In Easter joy, and with grateful hearts, let us share the victorious news of our risen Saviour. Let us share the beautiful message of the great hymn, “Lift High the Cross”.

Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim:

Till all the world adore His sacred name.

So shall our song of triumph ever be:

Praise to the Crucified for victory!!!!
