“When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus’ body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, ‘Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?'”
On Easter Sunday, when the devoted women in Jesus’ life were on their way to the tomb to anoint His precious body with spices, they were wondering who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb. Little did they know that the prophecy had been fulfilled; their Savior had risen from the dead, just as He said He would! All the prophecies of the Old Testament now came to fulfillment in this moment. The Messiah, Jesus Christ, who was with God at the beginning of the world, left heaven to die a criminals death on the cross so that you and I could be close to God.The veil was torn, there is no longer any separation between God and His children, for those of us who choose to believe. By turning our hearts to Jesus, and inviting Him to be Lord our lives, we now have the chance to be new and live a completely new life in Christ; turning our eyes away from our sins and onto Jesus, we now have a whole new story and the opportunity to live eternally with Jesus in heaven. Do you know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior? Your eternity is awaiting your decision. Will you pray with me today?
“Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sins and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.”

I remember going into my daughter's room night after night and kneeling beside her bed and crying my heart out to God because I didn’t know how to be a Christian mom; I felt like I had no idea what I was doing. You know what? God is so faithful! He answered me and simply said, “Spend time with me, Deb.” And so I did. I began arising 15-30 minutes earlier each day so I could read my Bible and pray, and plan out my day with my family.
If there was one thing I would love to share with you is that God is personal and loves you as you are. You don’t have to be perfect to be loved by our amazing God! Come as you are! His loving presence can be practically known and experienced. He is not a God who is far away, He is near and easily found. He longs for you to come to Him!
