Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Happy Easter Sunday. Today, we celebrate the most important moment in eternity and testify that Jesus Christ has risen. This special daily dose will help you feel the joy of Easter.
Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.—Mark 16:6
By giving His life He opened the door to resurrection and taught the way by which we could gain eternal life, which means to go back into the presence of the Father and the Son. That was who Jesus was in all His grandeur.—Harold B. Lee
