Lent - Easter Sunday

Luke 24: 1-5
1
  But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, taking the spices that they had prepared.  2  They found the stone rolled away from the tomb,  3  but when they went in, they did not find the body.   4  While they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men in dazzling clothes stood beside them.  5  The women  were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, but the men  said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen.

God does not ask us to be perfect, he asks us to have faith. Faith is a gift, heaven is a gift. On this the most holiest of days may we remember the resurrection promise that God is making all things new beginning with the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
