Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Jesus is alive. The message of Easter is still the same as it was some 2,000 Easters ago. Jesus Christ conquered death. He is risen. He sits at the right hand of the Father in heaven. He is also alive and residing in the hearts of all who believe in him. (John 3:16) “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

God’s love poured out for us all through his son Jesus’ life, death, burial and resurrection. He washed away man’s sin with his holy cleansing blood, God’s only son become the sacrificial lamb, slaughtered for the forgiveness of man’s sins.

(John 3:18-21) “There’s no eternal doom awaiting those who trust him to save them, but those who don’t trust him have already been tried and condemned for not believing in the only son of God. Their sentence is based on this fact: that the light from heaven came into this world, but they loved darkness more than light for their deeds were full. They hated heavenly light because they wanted to sin in darkness. They stayed away from that light for fear that their sins would be exposed and they would be punished. But those doing right come gladly to the light to let everyone see that they are doing what God wants them to.”

Believe, ask to receive, and trust Jesus to be your Savior and watch him come alive in you.

Happy Easter.

Dear Editor,

I am writing this to say thanks to the person or persons who have faithfully kept the large cross aglow on Red Mountain at Thanksgiving through the Christmas season, and now, at this holy Easter time.

It is a tradition that means a lot of different things to different persons. To me, and to many other Christians, it is a symbol of our faith in Christ Jesus, the son of God who was born to a virgin; lived to be our example for daily living; was crucified, and then, resurrected on Easter morning over 2,000 years ago so that we may have an eternal life. I am sincerely grateful to those who renew light bulbs and keep them burning on this unique site above our town.
