Victory in Jesus!

by Mrs. Lucille Kennedy
Greetings from a charter member of C.A.B.C.!
During this season of life that we call Lent (Springtime), our hearts and thoughts turn to the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection from death and the tomb. These forty days, for many, have become a period of time for fasting and prayer as we remember what Jesus has done for us when He died to redeem us from our sins. Our Sovereign God (the all-powerful, all-knowing, everywhere present, all-the-time God) would not leave His Son, Jesus, in the tomb, and so with thankful hearts we rejoice as we celebrate His resurrection at Easter time.
Jesus taught many things to many people while he was here. He gave us a new commandment to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves. He taught us how to pray, how to live, and how to die (Matthew 5, 6, 7). He also said He would come back again and He gave us signs to be aware of His coming (Matthew 24, 25). Jesus also said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you, and surely I am with you to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19).
So then, knowing that we have such a wonderful Savior and Lord, we can be assured that as we go through each troubling event in our lives, He will walk with us through each rough valley and carry us through every dark storm. Then He has promised one day to come again as King of Kings and take us to be with Him for Eternity! How can we not be rejoicing that Jesus lives?
He lives, TODAY!
Our Father, may our hearts rejoice, our minds remember,
and our lives respond to your abiding care, NOW!
In the loving, living name of Jesus,
