Christos Anesti!!!!!


Christ is Risen!!

He is Risen INDEED!!!!!!

My husband is from a Greek family.

Every year on Easter Sunday, 

 we greet each other with a kiss and the exclamation of

CHRISTOS ANESTI!!!!!

And the proper and joyful response is

ALITHOS ANESTI!

Indeed HE is Risen!!!

I love this. 

I love that Christ died for MY sins and that He did it because He loves me.

He did it because He knew that the only way for me be with Him in Heaven, 
was to give himself in my place.

He did it for all of us. 


Isaiah 53:5 says this:

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.


I am so grateful that Jesus did this for me. 

I pray you have a beautiful and blessed Easter. 

And please, please, remember how much you are loved.
