I praise God, my heavenly Father, for the fact that my earthly father is with Him. Yes, that is a comfort I share with others who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ. At times the words, “he is in the place” represented what I knew in my head but did little to comfort my heart in the midst of my grief. Today as we all approach Easter, the resurrection means even more to me. I know with every fiber of my being that my Father is in Heaven because of the work of Jesus Christ.
“So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man. Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life.” (1 Corinthians 15:21-22 )
As we approach Easter this year, let us be thankful not only for our salvation through the work of Jesus’ resurrection, but also the hope it gives to us and that we can share with others! He has Risen!!!!!
