Happy Easter everyone!!
Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.
He is not here for he has risen!
Matthew 28: 5-6
I’m filled today with the hope that comes from Jesus’ promise in his death and resurrection – that we are offered new life through Christ.
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.
And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
