Happy Easter 2008
I recently wrote this Easter message for everyone at my company and wanted to share it with you...
want to wish each and every one of you a very happy, joyous Easter
celebration. For more than 30 years I have been sending around my
thoughts as a Christian at Easter time. It's a privilege to do so again
Christians all across the
globe celebrate Easter because it is the reason for their faith. It is
what gives them hope that their life doesn't end when this earthly life
is over, but really begins when they join Jesus in Heaven.
and I have always found that there is an incredible joy you can almost
feel when you are in church on Easter Sunday. This is what being a
Christian is all about.
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father but by me."
Jesus asked Peter, "Who do you say that I am?" Peter gave that
wonderful testimony, "You are the Christ, the son of the living God."
is really unique among the world's religions. All other religions
believe that we earn our way into Nirvana, Shangri-La, Heaven, etc.
Christianity, on the other hand, believes that we get to Heaven only
through God's grace. In other words, Heaven is a gift that is ours if we
simply trust in Jesus as our Savior.
Isaiah, Jeremiah, David and Zechariah described the life and death of
Jesus in incredible detail hundreds of years before He lived, being a
Christian is a matter of faith.
believe that although I am a dreadful sinner, I will spend eternity in
Heaven with Jesus, not because of anything I have done, but because of
what Jesus has done for me.
the perfect life I cannot live. He took all my sins on Himself and then
died and rose again giving me the promise of life eternal.
I wish you the joy and happiness of Easter. May it fill your heart and lift you up.
Have a wonderful Easter celebration.
