"Why do you seek the living among the dead?"

 “I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the Lord, your God, heeding his voice, and holding fast to him. “ Deuteronomy 30:19-20

 
Isn’t it amazing that the Creator of all heaven and earth allows us to decide how we want to live? We have a choice to say, “yes” or “no,” to God’s love. While our choices lead to consequences, the choice is still up to us.
 
If we truly believe in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, that belief must cause us to live differently. Easter gives us confidence that the darkness in our past can be forgiven, our present has meaning, and we can have hope for the future.
 
When we choose to live within God’s laws, we choose life. Honesty over lies and deceit, self-control over sinful pleasure, generosity over selfishness – these are some of the ways we choose life with God in his love at Easter and beyond.
