He is Risen!

Today is the day that Christians around the world celebrate the day that Jesus rose from the dead!

God came to Earth and became a man, lived a perfect life, and sacrificed himself on the cross as the penalty for our sins, but then rose from the dead.  Those who place their trust in Jesus will likewise not stay dead, but will be raised with him to eternal life!

The apostle John wrote of meeting Jesus after he had risen, "When I saw him, I fell down at his feet like a dead man.  Then he laid his right hand on me and said, 'Don't be afraid!  I am the first and the last, the living one.  I was dead, but now I am alive forever.  I have the keys of death and hell.'"

Thank you, Jesus!
