GOD PAUSE: Good morning, my friend! I hop you have a day packed full of God's good things for you. This morning, during my Easter fast, I read in Mark 10:34 “Then people will mock Him, spit upon Him, whip Him, and kill Him. But on the third day, He will rise again.” Hallelujah for the resurrection of Jesus! Dear Lord, we thank you for the ultimate sacrifice of Your Son. He carried our sins, our sicknesses, our failures, our mess-ups on His shoulders to the cross. He died in our place. And because He rose the third day, we have resurrection life, too. Amen and amen.
