The Resurrection of Christ "Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. 3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,"
As Easter quickly approaches, we are all preparing to celebrate the days Christ suffered and died on a cross for our sins, was placed a in a grave and on the third day, defeated death and rose from the grave! We are also busy making the preparations for beyond us, as well as keeping up with our everyday activities.
Then there is spring cleaning, some are packing for spring-break vacations and others are packing up to return north after a wonderful winter season in Florida.
I just thought I would give you this lovely passage to meditate on over the next several days and a couple of easy recipes you might want to try for Easter. Who can’t use easy these days?
