He is Risen....
Vanity | 03/31/2013 | Astratt7

Posted on 03/31/2013 8:56:02 AM PDT by astratt7

On this Resurrection Sunday....take time today....put down all of the news, blogs and all of the cares of this world. Take a walk outside and look upon the beauty of His creation, or play with your child or pet. Find something to do that is quiet and peaceful and let your soul rest in Him today. And remember that He has overcome the World. Jesus is coming back just as He said and He would, and He will separate the wheat from the chaff and all that are found in Him will be with Him forever. Evil will not triumph...Praise God through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Philippians 4:8

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Happy Resurrection Day Freepers!

For the past day or so, I’ve been saying Happy Easter — don’t forget that He is Risen — to clerks in stores or restaurants when I buy something. The reaction has been overwhelmingly positive! I was shocked! I expected one or two sarcastic remarks, but not one! Usually a grin, a ‘YES, HE IS’ response or a thank you, Happy Easter to you, too!

Phil. 4:8 is my favorite Bible verse. I have it memorized and I often think of this verse when the evil desires of the world start to come to mind. Instead of thinking hateful mean thoughts I think of things that are TNRPLA.E OR PW. (NIV)

And this passage is bookended by a great promise. The POG and the GOP.

 

Philippians 4:7-9

New International Version (NIV)

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Amen. Just home from church. We had a wonderful service and a well packed house. Sadly, I wish about 25% of those would come back next Sunday and not just make this one of their yearly one or two trips to church.

He is Risen indeed ...

Went to Mass today. Will admit, it’s been a while.

But the homily was great — and I did find rest, for a few minutes today.

The priest gave a very good reminder that we are in this world, but not of it. We are caught up in time, but we belong in eternity — and we WILL go there someday. And that’s sometimes why life can be so hard ...but we have to keep faith. We are Saved, We are Found, We are Forgiven ....and We must always remember ...We are HIS children ...we know because He is Risen.

You need to start going to church more often. It gets easier the more you do it.

My wife and I had my mom (who is a devout Catholic) and two of my sisters and their families who don't go to church anymore (to the point of rejection)along with three of my kids who are regular church attendees over for lunch today.

My sisters are big same sex marriage fans.

Before saying Grace I told the group that Easter is more than chocolate eggs and the easter bunny it's about the Risen Christ. Then I read from the Bible- John 6:35-37,You could have heard a pin drop in the room.

I was actually “reprimanded” for saying I would not mind dieing.

This evil world is SO overwhelming. I want Him to comeback TODAY!!!!

Whether I am good enough or not doesn’t matter. What matters is that He comes and saves us.

Unfortunately, we all know the entire world would be destroyed if He did not step in.

Not a good “omen”.

To anyone interested:

The gospel (good news) of eternal salvation:

The Bible is clear that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God who died on the cross as our substitute.

He paid the penalty for our sins.

He took the punishment that we deserve.

God’s provision of eternal salvation is a free gift (Eph. 2:8,9).

God, through Jesus Christ, did everything.

All you do is accept that free gift.

Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.

The Bible explains how to be saved (how to receive the free gift of eternal salvation):

John 3:16-18
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever BELIEVES in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He who BELIEVES on him is not condemned: but he who does not BELIEVE is condemned already, because he has not BELIEVED in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Romans 4:5
But to the one who does not work, but BELIEVES in Him who justifies the ungodly, his FAITH is reckoned as righteousness

Romans 5:1
Therefore being justified by FAITH, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 3:28
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by FAITH without the deeds of the law

John 6:28-29
Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?”
Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to BELIEVE in the one he has sent.”

John 6:47
(Jesus Christ said) He who BELIEVES in me has everlasting life.

Acts 16:31
BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved

Acts 10:43
Every one who BELIEVES in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.

John 11:25-26
(Jesus Christ said) I am the resurrection and the life. He who BELIEVES in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and BELIEVES in me will never die. Do you BELIEVE this?
