Resurrection Sunday



Good Resurrection Sunday!! What a glorious day this is that we celebrate. This post is on auto pilot so I sure do hope it lands on time :).
Well it is time for another Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge, I am the host today and I have chosen -
Luke 24:46-47
And Jesus said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His name to all Nations, beginning from Jerusalem.

Our Host this week is Serendipity Stamps, they are giving out A QCL sized cling set of the winner's choice. How sweet is that!!

My challenge: Make a circle card.

Devotion
 
Times are changing. When I gave my life to Christ , it was taught that we were called to be holy as Christ is holy, we may never achieve the holiness of Christ but that it should be our main goal in life. Repentance of sin was the necessary step.

Our pastor had asked us in April to pray for him for a WORD from God to preach on Easter Sunday Morning, because many people will be there who do not come to church except on Christmas and Easter. I work with people who tell me they had given their lives to Christ but it did not stick! I also work with those who have given their lives to Christ, who have not changed. And this verse that is often used on Easter Sunday Morning comes to my mind and the part that is often forgotten “REPENT”, to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one's life, to feel sorrow, regret, or contrition. The word say’s we are to be new creatures in Christ. He paid the price to give us this new life.
Holiness is a battle, but our love for the Savior and what He has done is our motivator! My prayer for all of us in Christ is that we stay the course set before us, where we are weak that He will make us strong, that Christ and Christ alone is our only LOVE, that we repent of all those things that are not right and pleasing in His sight, that we walk worthy of the high call placed before us, Christ calls us Royal Priest’s, let us truly walk as though we are, preaching the gospel and setting the example. Let Christ’s suffering and death not be in vain in our lives.
