” For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

” O death, where is thy sting? O grave , where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1Corinthians 15:55-57

Payson ran into my room this morning and proclaimed with great joy, ” The sun is up, it’s a new day, God loves us.”  We also have great joy because we can say, ” The Son has risen, we have hope of a great new day, all because God loves us.” Rejoice because God made a way to take our sins away, rejoice because Jesus is the perfect way, rejoice because our sin has been handled once for all, rejoice because He reigns victoriously, rejoice because we belong to the King, rejoice because now we have hope.

” Up from the grave He arose, 
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes,
He arose a Victor from the dark domain, And He lives forever with His saints to reign,
He arose, He arose,
Hallelujah! Christ arose!”
( Hymn: Christ Arose by Robert Lowry)
