‘I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in Me will live, even though they die!’
- We can rejoice, because we can know the reality of eternal life. - Through HIS death, life was made possible for each one of us. - Let His life, death, and resurrection, fill you with hope, as you believe. - HE wants to give you new life, new hope and new strength.
Prayer: Lord, as we remember Your death and the price You paid, we are reminded that the purpose was to bring us life. No more death for us, because You are our resurrection and our life, and we believe in You. Amen.
