Happy Easter 2008

              Happy Easter 2008
I recently wrote this Easter message for everyone at my company and wanted to share it with you...

I 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 this year.

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. 

Kathi 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." 

When 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." 

Christianity 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. 

While 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. 

I 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. 

He lived 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.
