Celebrating our Savior

On this Easter morning here on Hvar when I heard the church bells in the village, I was reminded of Keith Green's Easter Song.

"Hear the bells ringing, they're singing that you can be born again..."

Hear the bells ringing, they're singing Christ is risen from the dead.
The angel up on the tombstone said He has risen, just as He said!
Quickly now, go tell his disciples that Jesus Christ is no longer dead.
Joy to the world, He has risen, hallelujah
He's risen, hallelujah
He's risen, hallelujah

Oh how profound those words of truth are! 

After a glorious hour with the Lord out on the porch, wrapped up in a blanket with my Bible and a cup of coffee, I came inside to join these dear ones for hymns, prayers, reading and talking about the Easter story from each of the Gospels. 

We finished with the hymn, "How Great Thou Art", singing every verse with all our hearts. No sweeter sound than singing with these lovers of God! 

This summer I will celebrate my 40th spiritual birthday of knowing Jesus as my Savior. While HE is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, He definitely means more to me with each passing day, and never more so than on an Easter when I celebrate the magnificent sacrifice He made for me, and for you.
