2 Corinthians 5:18-19
Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Greetings Bible Enthusiast!
For us in the United States, Easter comes at the beginning of spring. This reminded me of 2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." As you look around you and see new life bursting around you, through the flowers and trees, remember that you, too, are a new creation, and thank your Savior!
God Bless You!

--TODAY'S NOT SO TRIVIAL TRIVIA QUESTION:
Q. According to Luke 19:10, why has the Son of man come?
--TODAY'S BIT OF WISDOM/REFLECTION:
Easter is the New Year's Day of the soul.
-A. B. Simpson
A man is lost in the desert. He used up the last of his water three days ago and he's lying, gasping, on the sand, when in the distance he suddenly hears a voice calling "Mush! Mush!"
Not trusting his ears he turns his head and there it is again, closer this time -- "Mush! Mush!"
Propping himself up on one elbow he squints against the sun and sees, of all things, an Eskimo in a fur coat driving a sled with a team of huskies across the dunes. Thinking that it's a hallucination, he blinks and shakes his head, but it's for real! He painfully lifts one arm and in a cracked voice calls, "He-elp!"
The Eskimo pulls the sled up by him, the huskies panting in the heat, and he says to the Eskimo, "I don't know what you're doing here, or why, but thank God you are! I've been wandering around this desert for days, my water's all gone and I'm completely lost!"
The perspiring Eskimo looks down at him and says, "You think YOU'RE lost!"
--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:
