Why Easter?

I am not the person I used to be.   

Praise God.  He is the reason I can make that statement.  If it were not for Christ's sanctifying blood, and the Holy Spirit mercifully working in my life day after day, bitter moment after bitter moment, I would still be damaged, lonely, angry, fearful, judgmental, and painfully lost.  That’s not to say I don’t have these moments today, but they are fewer and farther between.  I no longer call myself by any of these things.  Today I am redeemed, hopeful, at peace, full of joy, made new, learning to love.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (English Standard Version)

 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
