He is Risen! He is Risen, Indeed!!!

He is risen, indeed! 
The trappings of Easter are fun; new dresses, hair bows, ham, bbq, eggs, etc.

But the message of Easter is life-changing!

This blog is about a house, but Easter both proceeds and will outlive our house. It's message is eternal.

In the Old Testament of the Bible, each year the Jewish people would bring a perfect animal, a lamb, as a sacrifice for the sins of their family. The temple priests would sacrifice the animal as an atonement for these sins. 
 When God sent Jesus (his only begotten son) to the world, it was Jesus who was the only perfect man who has ever walked on earth. He took his place on a cross as a sacrifice for the sin of all mankind. 
On the third day, Jesus rose from the grave, just as had been prophesied. And THAT death and resurrection is the reason for the Christian Easter. It is the cornerstone of the Christian faith!
