the Sword and Shield

He is Risen!

Today is Good Friday so our students and staff will be focusing on the crucifixion of our Savior. That Jesus set aside His identity as God, became a servant, and died as a criminal is a humbling thought. Paul encouraged us to imitate that attitude in Philippians 2:



5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.


Even more amazing is that He did not stay dead. We serve a risen Savior and can rejoice that He defeated sin and its curse, the grave, once and for all. We can live because He does.


He is risen indeed!
