Why I am Excited About Easter

Greetings from the Leadership Team at Strong Tower Ranch! 

If you are like me, you have been under a 'shelter in place' policy for the past four weeks. It has been one of the most interesting times of my life. The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly caused anxiety and sadness as we watch the daily news reports, and the future seems uncertain at times. But as a Christ follower, I rest in the fact that there are some things that are certain. Here are a few promises that I hold fast to as we live out our present circumstances.

It is certain, Jesus Christ has risen from the dead. Matthew 28:6 says, “He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead. Just as He said would happen. Come, see where His body was lying.” (NLT). We have a Savior that is alive! He is our redeemer!! That is so exciting!  

It is certain, He will never leave us nor forsake us. Hebrews 13:5 and Deuteronomy 31:6 say, “...I will never leave you nor forsake you.” The Passion translation says He will never loosen His grip on you. No matter the situation, COVID-19 included, He will never forget about you.  

It is certain, God takes every situation for the believer and works it for our good. This includes what we are experiencing right now. Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.” Everything and every situation.  

Because we walk by faith and not by what we see, this Easter we look to Jesus who swallowed up death and was resurrected from the grave. Because He lives, we get to experience abundant life! This makes me want to sing with all I have, “He is risen, hallelujah! Joy to the world, He has risen, hallelujah. He’s risen!!”  

You, too, can experience the joy-filled life by knowing Jesus personally. “If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved!” (Romans 10:9 NLT) 

My prayer for you this day is that you look to Jesus Christ. You will never be disappointed. Of that, I am certain!

Have a blessed Easter,
