Time to Redefine our Lives in Oregon

Happy Easter

Just a quick note this morning to wish you all a wonderful, and joyous day.   Our family has fun with Easter in the traditional, Easter bunny fashion , however, the real emphasis in our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls is the celebration of our risen Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.  More so than any other day of the year, Easter, is the cornerstone of the Christian faith….sin, evilness, and death have been defeated.   And although these things still exist, Christ took the world’s sin….all of it…..from the point of his crucifixion forward….upon himself that we may live.  Sin cannot be present in Heaven, and through our faith in Jesus…through our acceptance of God’s amazing gift of salvation, our sins are forgiven, our hearts are changed, we are made ready for eternity with God.  No more sadness, death, pain, or sin.  There is no good work that we can do to earn our way to God, it has been done…Christ paved the way…..

Ephesians 2:8-9       For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Happy Easter!!!!!
