Christ Arose!



i'm just thankful that the cross wasn't the end of the story ... resurrection was in God's plan from the beginning ... and salvation for us was the ultimate prize ...

i am so very thankful for the price Jesus paid for my soul ...

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.

“There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants.”
~John 3:16-21

How priviledged we are that HE chose us...before there was anything!! And planned for the needed redemption we would need! How awesome and how much more HE will teach us when HE comes back!! I am so glad I grew up learning about HIM!!
