The Greatest Gift of Love

HE IS RISEN! ALLEULIA!! "Now the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. Then she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and said to them, 'They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him.' Peter therefore went out, and the other disciple, and were going to the tomb. So they both ran together, and the other disciple outran Peter and came to the tomb first. And he, stooping down and looking in, saw the linen cloths lying there; yet he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb; and he saw the linen cloths lying there, and the handkerchief that had been around His head, not lying with the linen cloths, but folded together in a place by itself. Then the other disciple, who came to the tomb first, went in also; and he saw and believed. For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead." (John 20:1-9 NKJV) God loved us so much that He gave His only son that we might be freed from sin and death. If we believe in God, and give our lives to Him, we don't have to be tied to our sins anymore. And, we can have eternal life! This is the greatest gift of love that we could ever receive! "For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God...And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away...For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (Romans 6:10; Revelation 21:4; John 3:16 NKJV) Thanks be to God for His greatest gift! Amen! Love, Beau
