Easter is a time for celebration and reflection for Christians all around the world. It is a time to remember the greatest love and the ultimate act of sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for us. His love for us is so great that he willingly sacrificed himself, making the way for all of us to become sons and daughters of God.
“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here.” – Mark 16:6
The resurrection of Jesus on Easter morning is a reminder of the power of God’s love & the hope it brings. This hope drives LiveBeyond to serve others in need, just as Jesus served the people around him during his time on earth. It is a calling to be compassionate and selfless and to put others before ourselves.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed, I was sick and you looked after me. I was in prison and you came to visit me.” – Matthew 25: 35 & 36
At LiveBeyond, we are grateful for the opportunity to serve the people of Haiti and Israel. LiveBeyond believes that helping to create thriving, self-sufficient communities that operate locally helps improve people’s quality of life and helps people reach their full potential. But the most important thing we can do is to share the good news of Jesus Christ. And that is why LiveBeyond will always share the gospel of Jesus with everyone we serve.
In Thomazeau, Haiti, LiveBeyond’s healthcare, nutrition, and education programs create positive outcomes that will impact the community for generations. On the outskirts of Jerusalem, the Johnny’s Kids program is helping children with disabilities increase their physical abilities, and free meals are improving the overall health of families. It is LiveBeyond’s joy to serve the people of Haiti and Jerusalem. Jesus set the perfect example of service for us, and he commands us to do the same.
“Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” – Mark 16:15
As we celebrate Easter this year, we reflect on the love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. It is a reminder of the importance of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Without Him, none of this would be possible. We are thankful for the opportunity to serve others and share the love of Christ with them. We are grateful for our LiveBeyond family, who supports us and encourages us every step of the way. Together, we can continue to change the world with the love of Jesus Christ.
This Easter, we are reminded of the hope and new life that Jesus Christ brings. We pray that this Easter season fills your hearts with joy, peace, & the assurance of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
May the Lord bless you and keep you; may the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; may the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. – Numbers 6:24-26
