The power of the Resurrection

Everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard. The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Christ died for us at a time when we were helpless and sinful. No one is really willing to die for an honest person, though someone might be willing to die for a truly good person. But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. “Oh, what joy for those whose disobedience is forgiven, whose sins are put out of sight! Yes, what joy for those whose record the Lord has cleared of sin!"

[Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Romans 5:6-8, Romans 4:7-8]

Jesus willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for your sins and mine. Three days later, God raised Jesus from the dead (which fulfilled the prophecies recorded in the Old Testament)! Happy Resurrection Day!

Sara, I am so glad you stumbled upon my blog. And now that I have come over here, I find myself saying, NO WAY!!!
I was just in Minneapolis a few weeks ago. Oh, how I wish we had found each other sooner.
I spoke for a Moms' Night Out event in Burnsville on March 13. Wish you could've been there!
I can so identify with your struggles as you laid them out in the comment you left. Would love to send you a copy of my first book if you like to read. Just email me your address.

Love to you, and abundant grace. We need it so much!
Karen
