Happy Easter!

Our family would like to wish you a very happy Easter celebration this year.

For those who don’t know, Easter is celebrated by Christians around the world in remembrance of Jesus’ death and subsequent resurrection. As Christians, we believe that Jesus Christ was the son of God who came to earth, lived a life without sin or fault, was captured, falsely judged, tortured and crucified on what we now call “good Friday” even though He had done nothing deserving of death. On Sunday, as He had foretold during his life and as had also been prophesied in the Bible long before His birth, He rose again from the dead, spoke to and was seen by many over the next forty days, and then was visibly taken up to heaven to take His seat at His Father’s right hand.

Furthermore, we believe that He will return some day in power and glory as He promised, to take home to be with Him all who repent of their sinfulness and turn to believe in Him.

He did all this in order to reconcile us to God in order that by simply believing in Him, we might be saved from God’s destruction of sin. The Bible records in the book of John chapter 3 verse 16 that God loved the world SO much, He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life. It goes on to explain that “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” – John 3:18

If you would like to make YOUR life right with God, the process is quite simple, though it will affect your entire life. You can start by praying this simple prayer.

“Jesus, I ask you to come into my life. Forgive my sin. Thank you for dying on the cross for me. Lead my life as you want. Thank you for coming into my life right now and giving me a relationship with you. Amen.”

If you have prayed this prayer today, you can know that He has heard you and is willing to clear your debt from sin. He asks that you believe in Him and learn to trust in Him. The next step you should take is to tell someone. Tell us, or tell a family member. We would LOVE to talk to you further about this, or answer any questions you might have. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
