Someone asked me a few weeks ago who Jesus Christ was to me, personally. And I answered, “He’s everything good in my life.”
I feel blessed to be Christian, and it’s nice to have a wonderful spring day to celebrate Christ. Isn’t it wonderful that Easter is in the spring? When all the flowers start to come out of the snow, when the light of the sun shines into our life, we get to think about Christ. How appropriate.
And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you
–Matthew 6: 28-33
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
–John 8: 12
