One Thousand Gifts (continued)

"He is not here; He has risen, just as He said." 
 (Matthew 28:6)

Giving thanks for the hope that Easter brings!
H-heaven; knowing that heaven is real and that one day I will bask in God's glory with the angels     because of the hope of Easter
O-open tomb; the stone was rolled away, not so that Jesus could walk out, but so that the witnesses could see and believe that He was raised from the dead and so that all of us can proclaim, HE'S ALIVE!
P-penalty- Christ paid the penalty of our sins by His death on the cross
E-eternal life; know that God has promised eternal life to all those who confess with their mouths, "Jesus is Lord", and believe in their hearts, God raised him from the dead, will be saved (Romans 10:9)
