Easter Sunday

"And he said to them, 'Do not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him." (Mark 16:6)

"O love of God! O sin of man!
In this dread act your strength is tried;
And victory remains with love;
For He, our Love, is crucified."
(from "O Come and Mourn with Me Awhile by Frederick William Faber)

His death is my justification; His life is my life. In the battle of sin versus the love of God, Love won. The way to the mercy seat is open. May we come through it today with utmost joy and celebration, for Jesus is alive!
