Challenge #127 - Anything Goes

Praise God!  It's almost time for Easter.  This is a beautiful time of year for us all to reflect on what Jesus Christ, God in human flesh, did for us on the cross to provide a way for us to get to Heaven.  In this week's passage, John 11:25, Jesus tells us that "He is the resurrection, and the life" - since these are the words of Jesus, it shows us once again that Jesus really IS GOD, and He is telling us that "he who believeth in me, though he were dead (even if a person dies physically), yet shall he live" because we can receive eternal life in Heaven with Him because of His great sacrifice for us.  We will never die spiritually.  We have the choice of where our spirit will spend eternity.  Praise God for making a way for us to ENSURE that we can spend that eternity in Heaven with Him.  If  you have any questions about salvation, the Easter story, or the perfect plan God had for us when He offered Himself as the only worthy sacrifice for our sins, I would strongly encourage you to find a really good Bible-believing, Bible-teaching church to visit this Easter.  There are men (and woman) of God who can help answer all your questions, and you will find SUCH blessings through the fellowship of other Christians by getting involved in a local church.  We encourage you to always continue growing closer to Him, and to get all your questions answered in a way that will allow you to grow and mature in your walk with Him.  It's such a blessed life.  We wish you all a joyous and blessed Easter, and even more importantly, a blessed life - living for Jesus.

We thank you for sharing your art with us, and we look forward to seeing what you will create and share this week.  Our challenge is open to everyone, and if you have any questions at all about the rules and guidelines for our Anything Goes challenges, just refer to the Challenge Rules page.

As always, you are welcome to save this week's free scripture/word art file to your computer, but are not required to use it in order to play along in our challenges.   We welcome you share your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family-friendly, and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. This includes any type of art (not just limited to cards).  You may link up to 5 projects each week. The more you enter, the more you increase your odds of winning.  It is our desire that God's Word will be a blessing and encouragement to you each week. If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to read the complete list of rules under our page tab for "Challenge Rules".  Because our ultimate goal is to honor God, we have no other choice but to delete any entries that do not adhere to these guidelines.  Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your understanding and participation!

Here's this week's beautiful scripture/word art file.
We hope that it will be a blessing to you!
