Well today is Easter Sunday 2005. This is the day that has been set aside annually to acknowledge and celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

The resurrection of Christ is a declaration of victory of death and sin but the beautiful implications of His resurrection have direct application to our lives today and remind us that God has a plan. You see, Easter is more than it seems! Continue reading
