He Is Risen!!

1peter1_3“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,”
-1 Peter 1:3

He is risen!!

Today we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Today we celebrate the victory of Jesus over death and hell.  Today, we celebrate a celebration that will never end.

We didn’t deserve it.  Quite the opposite, we deserved eternal punishment for our sins, but our God is merciful and gracious, not willing that anyone should perish.  According to that great mercy, we now, by faith in Jesus, may be born again…given new life.

Jesus is our hope and our hope is living.  He was raised from the dead so we, too, can be raised to eternal life.  So, let us celebrate today and every day after, blessing the God who loved us so much and has given us new life in the risen savior.

He is risen!!

He is risen, indeed!!

Hallelujah!!!

Amen.

In Christ,
Pastor Kurt
