Some great quotes.But Did you notice that to LIVE again after death, we must be resurrected. The Lord Jesus lived again after His death , when He was resurrected . And so shall all who believe in Him and because of that , are In Christ Jesus . Churches all over the world will be celebrating , acknowledging and testifying that resurrection is real , Jesus is alive and because of that , we shall live again too .:) .
