Just as other religious holidays have done, Easter is quickly becoming secularized with non-religious symbols such as bunnies, candy, eggs, and candy eggs. The true story of Easter and why we celebrate it, however, is something much bigger to rejoice in. Romans 1:4-5 And Jesus Christ our Lord was shown to be the Son of God when God powerfully raised Him from the dead by means of the Holy Spirit. Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey Him, bringing glory to His name. Happy Easter!

“When God solves your problems, you have faith in His abilities. When God doesn’t solve your problems, He has faith in your abilities.” -Author UnknownI saw this quote on (where else) Facebook and jotted it down immediately. What an inspiring quote with such a comforting message. We don’t always feel like we are being listened to when we talk to God, but when He picks us up and puts us back on our feet in a very undeserving way, it is easy to see His love for us. The hard and trying times in our lives are the ones that make us realize God’s plans to teach us and help us grow. “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” -1 Corinthians 10:13 “But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” -2 Corinthians 12:9
