Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses about Resurrection.
God loves us His children so much that He gave His son Jesus Christ to us to pay for our sins. Jesus came to the world to die for us and to make salvation available for everybody. It was said that when Jesus died the veil in the temple was torn into two which signifies that everyone has been given access to come to the throne of grace to ask for favour and mercy and most importantly to seek God’s face.
