Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! We have a future hope--and a present vibrant life in Christ!"

Enter, vibrant life: Exit, colorless, dull, pale lifelessness. 

Christ's new life alive, colorful, active, animated, dynamic, electrifying, energetic, lively, responsive, sensitive, sound, sparkling, spirited, vigorous, virile, vital, vivacious, vivid, zesty! (John 10:10) 

What's so great about Easter? 

Christ's resurrection also lifts us : .
I Corinthians 15 sums it up:
"The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption.
It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory.
It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power.
It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.
There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.”
The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven.
As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly."
