The Resurrection of Jesus and Believers

The Resurrection of Jesus and Believers

Today we remember the crucifixion… On the cross Jesus said, “It is Finished.” (John 19:30)  FINISHED – PAID IN FULL. For those who place their faith in Christ, all the bad things we have done or will do, are paid for in full, by the blood of the Lamb who gave his life for us on the cross.

Not Even Disney World Can Keep Us Happy!

Colossians 3:1&2 says “Set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Happiness – we all seek after it – we all have tastes of it through out life – but not even Disney World can keep us happy all day long.
