He Is Risen!


"Death: Noun; "the act of dying the end of life; the total and permanent cessation of all the vital functions of an organism."
Not anymore!
"Rise: Verb; 'to get up from a lying, sitting, or kneeling posture; assume an upright position."

Oh yes He did! Christ defeated death!
"He is not here; He has risen!" Luke 24:6a
Just as Christ died, our old self has died. Just as he was buried, the old us is buried. And just as He has risen, we are raised to walk in newness of life.

Because of what He did, we now live as men and women of action. We now live with life.
These three days changed everything. When we believe & receive Him, it moves us from a sentence of death to a risen eternal life with Him forever in the next.
Because of His resurrection we have been given a rare beauty of new life.
What a great & hopeful reminder that because He lives, we are alive in Christ. A beautiful free gift.

Albert Einstein once said, "Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving" 
Keep moving with our risen Lord Forever Family! He's alive and as a result, so are we! Rise up this morning because we have been given a life of hope, new life, & purpose.
Living is moving toward life change & fulfilling the wonderful purpose He has for you. Rising and living is not quitting before your miracle happens.

Alleluia! Alleluia! Praise the One, risen Son of God!!!!!
We have much to be thankful for today.
What can you say this morning in gratitude for our Savior?
