Why Easter is So Important

Listen, I tell you a mystery:

We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed --

In a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.
For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable,
and we will be changed.

For the perishable must clothes itself with the imperishable,
and the mortal with immortality.
When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable,
and the mortal with immortality,
then the saying that is written will come true:

"Death has been swallowed up in victory."

"Where , O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?"

The sting of death is sin,
And the power of sin is the law.

But thanks be to God!
He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

I Corinthians 15:51-57

Happy Easter!

  2. Thanks, Stina. My sister took it yesterday down in our garden. I'll tell her you admired it. It'll mean a lot coming from an expert photographer like yourself. :)
