Monday's Musings: I really enjoy the spring time. Watching life burst out again after a long time of being buried in the dormacy of winter is always a great joy and a wondrous reminder of the life God has given us in Jesus Christ. I am so glad that death and the grave could not contain the LIFE.
I can imagine that the devil and his demons rejoiced at the cross and even more so at the grave. What a short lived celebration. "The angel said to the women, 'Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said....." (Mt.28:5-6).
Resurrection means all the promises of God are true. Resurrection means that death is defeated, that the grave has no power, and that our hope is a living HOPE. Resurrection means there are second chances for all of us. It means that we can be forgiven and our relationship with God can be restored forever.Resurrection means we don't have to stay buried under all our disappointments, failures, defeats; but that we can have new life, new beginings, and full assurance that all in Christ will have resurrection life forever.
Resurrrection is the greatest demonstration of the power of God to give life to all who will trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. If you haven't, now is the time to do so.

Faith Comes by Hearing Military Biblestick Program: This program provides military chaplains with free audio bibles for distribution to our servicemen and women upon their request. These are ultra-compact and ultra-rugged audio MP3 portable players pre-loaded with the complete NT (ESV), and includes select portions of Psalms as well. A $25 donation will provide one player to a military member. This would make a great SS or mission group project or even a family project. Call 800-800-2555 or go to the web site at www.MilitaryBibleStick.com for more information and/or to make a donation.
