I plan to retire...right after lunch on the day I die! Until then I'm here to serve God, love people and talk about Jesus!

Transferred and Transformed
For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son!
The reason Christians celebrate Easter is it changed everything. It changed the world and eternity. It changed our lives from despair to hope. It changed our citizenship from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of His beloved Son.
When Christ rose from the dead it declared to the world he had won! He won the victory over sin, death, despair and the enemy. When he rose from the dead eternity changed! Literally.
Jesus was the only one to ever rise from the dead to a new kind of life and promised that same life to those who trust him.
Easter is special because it means death has been defeated, life has won. Darkness has fled from the light of his glory. Sin's power over us has been defeated and our sins have been forgiven....all of them! Even the ones we haven't done yet.
Jesus made it possible for us to be sons of God! There is no other faith, no other religion that offers life, forgiveness, hope and promise like the Christian faith offers.
Now, because of Jesus, because of good Friday and Easter morning, anyone...and I mean anyone can become a son of God.
Transferred from death to life.
Transformed from sinner to saint.
Transferred from darkness to light.
Transformed from despair to joy.
All because Jesus died and rose again.
He is the God you are looking for.
Will you trust him? Will you invite him to rescue you and forgive your sins? It's free to anyone.
