An Empty Tomb … Living Hope!

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” 1 Peter 1:3.

Living Hope!

 Wishing you a joy-filled Resurrection Day as you remember God’s great mercy and grace. May you pause to ponder the cost of our living hope, God’s gift to the world, Jesus. 

How great is His love for you!

 Happy Resurrection Day!
