Celebrating Life: Happy Easter!
As a naturalist, it's what I study. Biology, ecology, the environment, the entire natural world around us: it's all about life. And there is no better season to celebrate new life than spring, as buds break open, wildflowers bloom, the hills turn green and adorable baby animals pop up all over the place!
Life is being resurrected, miraculously reborn, all over Creation!
On Easter, Resurrection Sunday, it is appropriate to celebrate this new life. But let's not forget the One who makes it all possible, the One who paid the penalty and defeated death, once and for all, so that those who believe in Him can experience both abundant life now and eternal life in the future.
Jesus tells us, "I am the way and the truth and the life." (John 14:6)
This spring, this Easter, as you celebrate new life, remember our Creator and Savior, the One who gave us life, sustains life, and offers us the gift of eternal abundant life with Him and through Him.
In Him is life.
