Hello ladies. Welcome to the mansion this fine Easter evening. I hope you all had a wonderful day with family and friends.
The Teagues attended a great church service this morning and then headed out for a HUGE lunch at Longhorn Steakhouse. Yum. Because of the belt busting lunch, we didn't have DINNER. So...there will be no Dinner or Dessert, only Discuss this evening.
During worship this morning we sang, "In Christ Alone," by the Newsboys. The song starts kinda slow and then builds to this...."Then bursting forth in glorious day, up from the grave He rose again..." I LOVE that song!
He Rose! He is Risen
Matthew 28:5-7 says, "The angel said to the women, Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; He is risen, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay."
He Rose! He is Risen! He is Alive!
Matthew 28:18-20 says, "Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I'll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age."
He Rose! He is Risen! He is Alive! He has Commanded!
Jesus died that we might live. Live to testify here and forever.
42 times in the New Testament Jesus tells us to get His word out. While this Easter day may almost be to a close, our work day is not over.
Phillipians 2:9-11..."Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
Every knee has not yet bowed down. Every tongue has not yet confessed. There are more ears needing to hear and more hearts needing to embrace. Continue the good work ladies. Bless you and your families this day. He is with us....
