Joy Comes In The Morning!

Joy has come in the redemption of sins!  
In the seeker being found!  
In the lost being directed.  
In the broken-hearted being loved!

“O death, where is your victory?  O death, where is your sting?” 1 Cor. 15:55

Death could not hold redemptive Love in the grave!

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.’” John 14:6

For the unloved one—
He is the personal and intimate, unconditional and thoughtful agape love.
For the depressed, the rejected, the grieving one—
He is the deep joy not understood nor sustained by this broken world.
For the weary, restless, worried one—
He is peace; sweet, deep, all encompassing and thoroughly sufficient, restful peace!
For the hurt, bitter, sinful one—
He is far reaching forgiveness that frees from living in hell; both eternally and while here on earth.
For the broken and empty one—
He completes the design originally intended and the freedom that comes in living within it.

“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.  Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” John 14:27

Resurrection morning is God’s love realized to the world.  He cannot make us choose Him, but He woos us with His love.
Resurrection morning is His matchless joy shouting out to all the generations, all the Kingdoms and all the worlds.
Resurrection morning is His peace deeply realized as death no longer has the final say in any life.
Resurrection morning is absolute forgiveness of sins and all deceit of the evil one conquered.
Resurrection morning is completion of the work of the Son for the Father.  
"It is finished!"

“If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9

Easter is God’s love triumphing once for all—forever—over evil!

What love—what joy—what forgiveness & completeness.  
All because of the cross, the tomb and the resurrection power 
of God through Christ Jesus. 

“To the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, be the glory forever.  Amen.” Romans 16:27
