"If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. But in fact if Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have died." ~ 1 Corinthians 15:17, 20

Thought for today:
Eternal God, Lord of all my life, I, Your forgetful child, now remind myself of my final dependence on You. You do not forget me, I forget You. You do not despise me even when I go astray. Let me recall old promises. For You have said, ‘Everyone who is thirsty, come to the waters, and he who has no money, come, buy and eat.’ I am parched and dry, O Lord, but I come. 
(Kenneth G. Phifer)
