The Easter Story is a story of life, death and resurrection, it’s a message to the entire world, one that it needs to hear. Today millions of people will welcome the Easter bunny, egg hunts, and celebrations, but will they forget the message? Will you be one of those people who forgets the greatest love story ever?

God loves you so much that he died for you, he suffered and died so that you could have eternal life! Isn’t that a wonderful thought?
He loves each and every one of us, more then we can even imagine.
And we have proof of his love, he went through the unimaginable to save us!
Happy Easter! Christ is Risen! I pray that you will truly feel God’s love today and every day!
Make sure to listen to this great song before you leave! 🙂
P.S. I know it’s April fools day. But believe me, it is no joke that God loves you, in fact it is far from that…………..
