"The Lord lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let the God of my salvation be exalted." - Psalm 18 V46

"I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death." - Revelation 1 V18

Soon we will be celebrating the resurrection of our Saviour Jesus Christ. Easter ought to be celebrated with great joy because it is a day of victory that our Lord gained for us through His rising from the dead. All who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and believe in Him have the same hope of rising from the dead one day. The sting of death was broken and even though we still have to go through the physical separation of soul and body when we die, our bodies will be reunited one day into a glorious body and the second death, which is the eternal separation from God, will have no authority over us. But we ought to remember that before Easter there is a good Friday when the Lord died and paid the price for our sin. The price was heavy but it was the love of God that let His Son die on our behalf on the cross. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
