HE IS NOT HERE, HE IS RISEN
THE BIBLE SAYS:
NOW UPON the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.
And they entered in, and found not the body of the LORD JESUS.
Luke 24:1-3
Because of Jesus’s resurrection from the dead, He is alive and present with us today.
Only Christians know that whatever situation we face, Jesus understands and cares. And He will carry us through.
So rejoice ….He will see you through.
HE is not dead
Ask me how I know?
A dead man could not save me
Ask me how I know?
A dead man can’ t do what the Power of Jesus can do.
HE is not Dead!!! He is Risen!!!

THE GARDEN of GETHSEMANE
THE BIBLE SAYS:
And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
Luke 22: 44
Jesus was about to face:
Betrayal, arrest and death.
HE asked his closet friends to stay and pray with him.
HE shared with them that His soul was overwhelmed with sorrow.
But they kept falling asleep.
My beloved…..dont count on friends when you are going through tough times.
They may fall asleep on you.
Jesus faced the agony of the garden without the comfort of a hand to hold.
Just remember because He bore pain we can be assured that He will never leave you or forsake you.
Count on Jesus !

YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED
THE BIBLE SAYS:
IT WAS THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST.
1 PETER 1 :19
So many try to find their worth in people, places and titles.
Some are concerned about how they look before others, what they do for a living or even how people treat you.
Stop trying to impress others …people will lift you up one day…
And drop you the next.
Don’t allow others to brand you
Don’t allow others to take away your self-esteem
Don’t allow others to make you feel useless or worthless.
Don’t spend your time “kissing up” to people who don’t care about you.
Just remember from this day forward….
YOU HAVE BEEN APPROVED BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS!
AND THAT IS ALL YOU NEED.
