Scavenger Hunt Sunday: April 8th

1. New

When I look at this, I'm reminded of the song Beautiful Things by Gungor. Part of the song goes like this:
All around
Hope is springing up from this old ground
Out of chaos life is being found in You

It's a beautiful promise that Jesus gives life and that life is everlasting! He is the hope of the nations; the Lord over all the earth.

2. Life

We went over to some of our extended family's house to celebrate Easter tonight and after dinner my brothers and I went outside to the backyard. Christopher immediately started climbing trees and I took to snapping away with my camera. I love Christopher's expression of wonder here. His young exuberance and passion for life is refreshing.

3. Fragrant

4. Pink

5. Obvious

It's obvious that Jesus was the Son of the God, because even the centurion realized that he was God after the events of Good Friday, the day that Jesus died. Therefore, since Jesus is God, and he paid the penalty for our sin, we ought to give our lives to him in surrender. He promises life in abundance to all who put their trust in him. It's also obvious that Jesus died and rose again because he was seen by over 500 eye witnesses!

When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, "Surely he was the Son of God!" -Mark 27:54
