We Are His Sheep

Jesus.  Fairy tale?  Or Truth?


  Have you ever taken a novel and read a chapter here and there and understood the entire book? 

 The Bible is inconclusive if scripture is taken out of context or if the entire book is not read and considered.


How can anyone understand the importance of the crucifixion  if they do not know about the sacrifices of old?


How can Jesus resurrection be believed if you don't know every detail of salvation that the Bible teaches?


How can we understand God's love, 
without knowing His history?


We are His sheep.  

I am thankful for His sacrifice and His Love.  On this Easter day, which we all know is really just a day we chose to celebrate...  

I remember His sacrifice... and the greatest of His commandments.

Matthew 26: 32-40


36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’  38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Hope you have a wonderful Easter, Bobbi!!! And hoping Gracie is doing better!!! Did you know that the word Easter comes from the pagan goddess of spring, Eostre?? I can't quite remember how to spell her name, there are two spellings. She once turned a bird into a magical hare who laid eggs. Many churches are now changing the name from Easter to Resurrection Sunday because of this history.

I always say Jesus made it so simple and we complicated it so much. He said to love God and love ourselves and when we add rules and regulations, I don't think that is what he had i mind. I am so thankful he chose to go to the cross for me so I could spend eternity with him! hope you all had a great day!
