Happy Easter! He is Risen!

This Easter Sunday we want to remember the families and friends of all of those who have lost loved ones, especially over the past year, and all of us, like myself, who are celebrating Christ alone this Easter.
The message of hope on this Resurrection Sunday is that because Jesus came, and lived, and died, and lived again, our hope is in him, and whosoever believes in him will never die but have eternal life.
As Jesus hung on the cross between two thieves, one of them mocked him saying, “Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!” While the other said, “Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? ...but this man has done nothing wrong. And he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.’” From the cross Jesus replied, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise” (Luke 23:39-43 ESV).
Christ’s Blood poured out through Jesus’ suffering and death are the proof of our salvation. His Resurrection is the proof of the promise that God has given us of eternal life (John 3:16).

Paul wrote to the church at Thessalonica, “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him” (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 KJV).
God has not left us alone and he has not left us as orphans. He sent his Holy Spirit to be with us forever, and as the surety of our secure place with him in eternity.
As we celebrate Jesus’ Resurrection today, even if we are unable to hug and kiss and hold all of our loved ones, please remember that because our hope is in Christ alone, we are never truly alone. And we will see those who have gone before us again one day in Paradise, with Jesus. “Wherefore comfort one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:18 KJV).
Beloved Friend, if you have not yet received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, and you are feeling confused and alone, please pray this prayer with me now, to receive Christ into your heart, and I promise you, he will send his Holy Spirit to abide with you forever as your Guide and Comforter.
Dear God, I believe with all my heart that Jesus died on the cross for my sake, and that He has risen from the dead for my deliverance. Lord, I receive your Word, and I repent of my sins.  I receive the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I receive Your complete forgiveness and my new birth into Your kingdom. I receive Your Holy Spirit to guide me and teach me, and I make You the Lord of my life. I receive salvation in the holy name of Jesus, today and forever.
Amen.
If you prayed this prayer from your heart today, then you have been cleansed of all your sins and born again into new life through Jesus Christ, and we are so happy for you! We are praying for you, we love you, and God bless you, in Jesus' name.
All of us at Speak Comfort wish you and your families a very Happy Easter.
