Happy Resurrection Day!

Acts 17:24-31

24"(AX)The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is (AY)Lord of heaven and earth, does not (AZ)dwell in temples made with hands;
25nor is He served by human hands, (BA)as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things;
26and (BB)He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having (BC)determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation,
27that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, (BD)though He is not far from each one of us;
28for (BE)in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, 'For we also are His children.'
29"Being then the children of God, we (BF)ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man.
30"Therefore having (BG)overlooked (BH)the times of ignorance, God is (BI)now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent,
31because He has fixed (BJ)a day in which (BK)He will judge (BL)the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has (BM)appointed, having furnished proof to all men by (BN)raising Him from the dead."

John 3:16-18

16"For God so (W)loved the world, that He (X)gave His (Y)only begotten Son, that whoever (Z)believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
17"For God (AA)did not send the Son into the world (AB)to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
18"(AC)He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of (AD)the only begotten Son of God.

Romans 3:23

23for all (A)have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Titus 3:5

5(A)He saved us, (B)not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but (C)according to His mercy, by the (D)washing of regeneration and (E)renewing by the Holy Spirit,

Romans 5:8

8But God (A)demonstrates (B)His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, (C)Christ died for us.

1 Peter 3:18

18For (A)Christ also died for sins (B)once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might (C)bring us to God, having been put to death (D)in the flesh, but made alive (E)in the spirit;

John 1:12

12But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become (A)children of God, even (B)to those who believe in His name,

A happy and blessed Resurrection Day to you and yours too, Jackie. My beloved Mom was born on Easter Sunday 1933. My beloved wife celebrates her birthday today. Yet today we celebrate an event far more important than every human birthday put together.

What a Friend we have in Jesus!

Happy Resurrection Day all around!
