Jesus Christ has risen!

He has conquered death and the grave. This is the best of news to any who are looking to be set free from their patterns of sin and shame. Jesus is the answer. Why?  Because He being the very nature God, took on human flesh and lived among us. He experienced life on every level we have, yet without sin. He did this because of His great love for us. But He didn’t stop there. He willingly went to the Cross and chose death, so we could live. When He arose that first Easter morning, it was proof that God the Father had accepted His sacrifice in our place. This is what Christians call the Good News of the Gospel. We owe our very life and breath to Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

“For God so loved the world,i that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” John 3:16-17 ESV

In marriage, this Good News brings with it hope that we don’t have to stay the way we are. There is a way out of the ruts we have created–patterns of selfishness and independence. or of fear and shame. These ruts lead no where good. It takes determination and resolve to pursue another way. And Jesus not only promises to help us get there, He commits to walk with us every step of the way. We must simply ask.

Jesus Christ is bringing resurrection power to our lives and  marriages! So on this Holy Day, Resurrection Sunday, let us thank God for His willingness to give us a hope and future. Tom and I can’t imagine where our marriage would be apart from the Gospel. We can’t help but share our hope with all who are searching for the same.

Jesus Christ is risen – He is risen indeed!

Happy Easter Sunday from our home to yours!

  1. On this quiet Easter morn
    I’m raising up my wife,
    that on my death she’ll be reborn,
    a resurrected life.
    She’s out with friends, not stuck here
    to watch me die of cancer,
    having to shed a common tear
    for not having an answer.
    The Godly friends she’s making now
    will carry her through the loss
    and will help her, show her how
    to face its crushing cost.
    Today I’m alone, but am not lonely
    for my heart is with my one and only.
