Happy Easter!

Christ is Risen; He is Risen indeed!! Thanks be to God for his glorious grace given to us on the cross. I am so thankful that my sins have been paid for in full. Christ's work on the cross is totally complete. It not only bought me forgiveness, but it works to make my calling in Christ complete. Christ didn't just make it possible for me to be saved, it does all the work to save me. God in his love decided to choose me before the foundation of the world to be a part of his family. Not because he looked down the corridor of time and saw that I would choose him or do something worthwhile to make a good addition to his family, but only because HE chose to set his love on me for no other reason but for his glory. He never had to choose anyone. He doesn't need us. He chose me in love before the foundation of the world only for his glory. So he knew that Christ would have to pay for my sins and make that calling effectual. And Christ's death and resurrection makes that happen. I don't exercise some faith that I was born with, God changed my heart through the work of the Holy Spirit. I got a heart that was no longer dead in my sin nature, but now I was alive and could then live for Christ and choose him. Faith came after I was regenerated in my heart/soul. Awesome. I love that I have an awesome, sovereign God like that. That is the kind of Lord I want to worship and serve all my life.
Hallelujah! Christ is risen. I am glad that my Lord and Saviour lives, and isn't dead. And I will live eternally with him in heaven some day. I am looking forward to that very much. Come Lord Jesus, come.

Hope you had a Happy Easter and rejoiced in what God made possible for you through the death and resurrection of his Son, Jesus Christ. We had a good day with family and having fun enjoying some awesome weather. Spring is here!
