The God of all creation, became man, lived the only perfect human life ever lived, suffered and was crucified to reconcile us to Himself. CHRIST IS RISEN FROM THE DEAD! He has power over death! Let your Spirit be glad knowing that you were bought with a price. And His promises are true!
Psalm 19 The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
4 Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
5 which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
Zephaniah 3:14 Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion;
shout, O Israel!
Rejoice and exult with all your heart,
O daughter of Jerusalem!
15 The Lord has taken away the judgments against you;
he has cleared away your enemies.
The King of Israel, the Lord, is in your midst;
you shall never again fear evil.
16 On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem:
“Fear not, O Zion;
let not your hands grow weak.
17 The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
18 I will gather those of you who mourn for the festival,
so that you will no longer suffer reproach.
19 Behold, at that time I will deal
with all your oppressors.
And I will save the lame
and gather the outcast,
and I will change their shame into praise
and renown in all the earth.
20 At that time I will bring you in,
at the time when I gather you together;
for I will make you renowned and praised
among all the peoples of the earth,
when I restore your fortunes
before your eyes,” says the Lord.
*I have added the bold type for emphasis.
I hope you can sit and contemplate just how precious and irreplaceable you are to our loving Heavenly Father. If that is hard to grasp, please thank God, anyway, by faith. Give Him an opportunity to make the promises more real to you than ever before.
CHRIST IS RISEN!
HE IS RISEN INDEED!… For YOU!
