From the desk of Pastor Jan . . . “Jesus Loves Me; Easter Tells Me So”

Resurrection Sunday celebration came early this year. But we believe that its message is for all seasons, for all people. Resurrection Sunday is our declaration of God’s infinite love for all. 1 John 4:9-10 says, “God showed his love for us when he sent his only Son into the world to give us life. 10Real love isn’t our love for God, but his love for us. God sent his Son to be the sacrifice by which our sins are forgiven.”  CEV) <!–split–>

There is an Easter song by Joanna Fuchs in the tune of Jesus Loves Me This I Know. Let us sing with our child-like faith our Risen Savior’s love for all.

Jesus Loves Me, Easter Tells Me So

 Jesus loves me, this I know; The Easter story tells me so.

He died for me to bear my sin; He opened heaven to let me in.

Chorus:

Yes, Jesus loves me; Yes Jesus loves me;

Yes Jesus loves me; Easter tells me so.

 Jesus loved me when He died, Loved me enough to be crucified.

But His death didn’t last very long, Because His power is so strong.

Jesus’ came back from the dead I know because the Bible said.

Jesus is my Lord and King; Love and praise to Him I bring.

When I die, I’ll rise up, too. We’ll all be in heaven, me and you.

We’ll see Jesus face to face. Up in heaven, that happy place.

The Easter story brings much joy, To us all, each girl and boy.

Jesus is my Savior now; Heaven and earth to Him must bow.

May this Resurrection Song play in our hearts everywhere and every day!
