For those of you for whom Easter means bunnies and eggs, I hope you have a wonderful day with your family and friends and that you are happy in the company of those you love!

For those of you for whom Easter means a man, a cross and a resurrection, I hope you woke with thoughts of new life on your mind and heart and that you wake up not just today but everyday with your eyes on not the cross, but the LIFE after it and what that means for all of us.

And for those of you for whom Easter is just another day, I hope that you find peace and that one day Easter means rebirth, a new chance, hope, a future, not just here, but eternally.

Happy Easter!

Could it be any clearer? Our old way of life was nailed to the cross with Christ, a decisive end to that sin-miserable life—no longer at sin's every beck and call! What we believe is this: If we get included in Christ's sin-conquering death, we also get included in his life-saving resurrection. We know that when Jesus was raised from the dead it was a signal of the end of death-as-the-end. Never again will death have the last word. When Jesus died, he took sin down with him, but alive he brings God down to us. From now on, think of it this way: Sin speaks a dead language that means nothing to you; God speaks your mother tongue, and you hang on every word. You are dead to sin and alive to God. That's what Jesus did.
-Romans 6: 8-11 (The Message)
