He has risen!

And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back— it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed.And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. . " Mark 16:4-6

 All Glory, Laud and Honor

All glory, laud and honor,
To Thee, Redeemer, King,
To Whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.

Thou art the King of Israel,
Thou David’s royal Son,
Who in the Lord’s Name comest,
The King and Blessèd One.

The people of the Hebrews
With palms before Thee went;
Our prayer and praise and anthems
Before Thee we present.

To Thee, before Thy passion,
They sang their hymns of praise;
To Thee, now high exalted,
Our melody we raise.

Thou didst accept their praises;
Accept the prayers we bring,
Who in all good delightest,
Thou good and gracious King.

Theodulph of Orlean circa 820 a.d.

He is Risen!

He is Risen! And those who are found in Him, will also rise. . this card is a reminder to us that we become new creations when we are converted and place our trust and hope for this world and the next in Jesus. The old things have passed away. .and we should be seeking daily to put off the old ways and put on the new ways that are honoring to the Lord!

The green and the brown remind us that though we are but dust, we have been given life, and life eternal in Christ. Even so, our bodies will return to the dust at death and and our spirit will go to be with the Lord. That is, until that great day when the trumpet sounds and all are reunited with their resurrected bodies for all eternity. He has risen and so shall we!

He has opened up the door to Paradise (which is why I chose a gate fold card!) and the way is open to all who will repent of their sins and turn and follow Him.
