He Lives!

Hey, this is Odie checking in with you again today. I want to start by wishing you a Happy Easter. Thank God for resurrection day!

I am thankful that Jesus gave His life for us that we could be saved. But that's not how the story ends... on the third day, He arose.  My Savior lives!

Today I serve a risen Savior! Not only is He my Savior, but He can be yours too! If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus, I highly recommend my friend, Jesus! He has changed my life and He is waiting to do the same for you!

The Bible says, If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Hallelujah!

Jesus gives my life purpose. He is the reason I live.  I love the way the song writer Bill Gaither summed it up in "Because He Lives". 

God sent His son, they called Him Jesus,

He came to love, heal and forgive
He lived and died to buy my pardon
An empty grave is there to prove my savior lives

Because He lives
I can face tomorrow
Because He lives
All fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living
Just because He lives

How sweet to hold a newborn baby
And feel the pride and joy he gives
But greater still the calm assurance
This child can face uncertain day because He lives

And then one day I'll cross the river
I'll fight life's final war with pain
And then, as death gives way to victory
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He reigns

This week I have focused on these lines 

"Because I know He holds the future

And life is worth the living
Just because He lives"

In my frail human mind I worry, fret and wonder about the future. But I must remember the He lives and He holds my future. Jesus makes life worth living.  He lives!

I want to close today by wishing my cousin Morgan Rae Evans a happy birthday. I can not believe she is now 13. March 26th 2003, when  Morgan was born, she brightened our family's world. 

Morgan, you are a beautiful young lady. We love you so very much! I pray that you keep your tender heart toward God! 

Below are a couple pictures of us from Christmas Eve 2015. 

Thank you for reading today. I hope you have a great holiday weekend.
