Give Thanks to the Lamb of God

Remember the Passover. God told the Israelites to sacrifice a lamb, to eat the lamb and mark their doors with its blood.   easter lily

That night, while death was all around them, the angel of death passed over every house marked by the blood of the lamb. The Passover lamb gave its life so God's people could live.

Jesus was born into the world to give his life for us, so that everyone who believes in Him can live with Him in heaven forever. Jesus is our Passover lamb.

Jesus is risen. He has conquered sin and death. Rejoice and be glad. God has given us life. Never forget the sanctity of Life. Work to protect it.

Have a blessed, grateful and peace-filled Easter!
