He is Risen!

He is risen!  Hallelujah!
Oh what a wonderful feeling it is to know that I am free, because of what Christ did for me.  I still marvel, after all these years, that He died FOR ME.  It feels so personal and brings me a hint of sadness thinking of His suffering, knowing that I did not, nor will I ever deserve this kind of love.  A love that is so great that He suffered on the cross, was buried and rose again, FOR ME ...  so that my sins could be forgiven and I could be reconciled with God  ...  so that I could live a life of peace and joy in knowing that when I die, I will spend eternity with God.  What a wonderful feeling that I do not have to earn it.  The price has been paid.  If you would like more information on how you can have this kind of peace and joy, this assurance, this kind of love, then please feel free to email me -

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life" John 3:16
