After the Ressurection
Happy Easter! He is risen!
Easter is a fabulous holiday to remind us that Jesus took the punishment from our sins by being beaten and dying for us. The great news is, though, that Jesus rose from the grave and returned to heaven.
Thankfully, He is returning soon. In the meantime, what are we supposed to do?

What does the Bible say?
In the Bible, Jesus shares how He equips us until His return.
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
