In the Name of Jesus

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. ~ Matthew 28:18-20

Easter, Pascha (Greek, Latin), or Resurrection Sunday is a sacred time for Christians all over the world. A time when we reflect and reverence the sacrifice of our risen Lord and Savior… Jesus Christ. A celebration of the unfathomable outpouring of humility and love for humanity by Jesus in honor of God, our Heavenly Father.

As I listen to the song, As I Pray (, the words are so honorable and powerful. They give meaning to the phrase “words are spirits”. In the song, the artist sounds passionately in love with God and yearns to be with Him… because He has been in His presence. Such a deeply devoted love of God requires knowing His Son, Jesus Christ. According to John 14:6, Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

So, in the midst of “easter eggs” and “easter bunnies” …on this Easter Sunday, we know why we celebrate in love and hope. We rejoice… knowing victory is already ours! For the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead… affirms that He lives… and we shall too.
