Sorry I’ve been absent from my blog. My children were on Spring Break last week and I promised to “work less.” That meant less time on the computer. I must confess. I enjoyed every moment without my computer! The kids and I shopped, went to the movies, and talked about everything from A-Z. Oh, yeah…one of the most exciting things that happened over Spring Break was my son broke the “home-run” record at the park! He hit 3 home-runs in one game! Whoo-Hoo!
As grand as that was, nothing can out do Christ’s resurrection. What a celebration! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Christ has risen, indeed!! I love this quote by Jim Cymbala…
“The blood of the Lamb of God is strong enough to break the chains of drugs and crime. It overwhelms bad habits, bad socioeconomics, and bad friendships. It is the Passover to fulfill all Passover meals, freeing us from the punishments we deserve. It is the center of our hope and faith in Christ. It is God’s provision for all the messes we find ourselves in.”
Mr. Cymbala reminds me that Christ’s death and resurrection not only forgives sin and provides a free ticket to heaven, but it destroyed sin! You and I are no longer in bondage. We can be free because our God is strong enough to conquer our sin! That, my friend, is good-no-great news! Can I get a witness?!
