Easter Wednesday

"And even when you were dead in transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, he brought you to life along with him, having forgiven us all our transgressions; obliterating the bond against us, with its legal claims, which was opposed to us, he also removed it from our midst, nailing it to the cross."  ~Colossians 2:13-14

"Jesus came to raise the dead. The only qualification for the gift of the Gospel is to be dead. You don't have to be smart. You don't have to be good. You don't have to be wise. You don't have to be wonderful. You don't have to be anything. You just have to be dead. That's it!"  ~Rev. Robert Farrar Capon, 1925-2013, Episcopal priest, author and cook

Here I am, Lord!
Dead in my sins
yet gloriously alive
in Your amazing grace!
My Jesus, I thank You!
