HE'S ALIVE! 

Easter is the season when we usually think of the resurrection, but the fact of Jesus' victory over death applies to every day, every season, every moment of our lives. The truth that Jesus Christ died, was raised from the dead, and lives forever is not just destiny-changing—it's life-changing. Because of His resurrection, we too live, and shall live forever. Because of His resurrection, the horror of death loses its sting.

When our oldest granddaughter LeeBeth was three, she watched a Christmas drama that brought her face to face with the death of Jesus for perhaps the first time. As they began to drive the nails in his hands and feet, her little body would jump with every blow of the hammer. "They're hammering Jesus," she would say. "They're hammering Jesus." All through the rest of the day she said it over and over again—she couldn't get it out of her mind. She told her mother, "Momma, they hammered Jesus. Momma, they hammered Jesus. They hammered Jesus." Lisa would say, "I know, LeeBeth. But the good news is—He's still alive." She was still stung by the picture of His death. "Yes, but they hammered Him. They hammered Jesus." Lisa would patiently say, "They did, LeeBeth, but He's alive."

That night when her Daddy came in to hear her bedtime prayers, she said, "Daddy, did you know they hammered Jesus?" He said, "I know, LeeBeth." Then she thought for a moment and said, "But Daddy—the good news is, He's still alive." He is. And it makes all the difference in the world.

MEMORY VERSE 

God raised Him up again, putting an end to the agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held in its power.
