He is Risen!

This Easter Season in South Dakota has special significance.  We must all contemplate why Jesus chose to come as a baby in a manger.  He said, “You must become as a little child before you can enter the kingdom of heaven.”  He said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father but by me.”  As we celebrate Easter, let us celebrate truth.  Let us have the courage to always stand for truth.  This is a time when our country has rejected the innocence of a child.  Why?  It’s all for selfishness.  All sin has its root in selfishness.  There are 365 “Fear Nots” in the Bible, one for every day of the year.  Jesus said, “I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of love, and of power and of a sound mind.”  As we are mindful of that, let us speak with boldness, and courage.  Let this Easter season be the dawn of a new birth of freedom starting right here, right now in South Dakota.  We are a chosen people for such a time as this, with a unique opportunity to speak up for the voiceless as Proverbs 31:8 says, “Open your mouth for the speechless in the cause of all those who are appointed to die.”

            In the Far East people plant a tree called the Chinese bamboo.  During the first four years they water and fertilize the plant with seemingly little or nor results.  But the fifth year they again water and fertilize – and in five weeks time the tree grows ninety feet in height!  Question: Did the Bamboo tree grow ninety feet in five weeks or five years?   Answer: It grew ninety feet in five years, because if at any time the people had stopped watering and fertilizing the tree, it would have died.

            Five years ago the people of South Dakota planted the bold seed of life in our South Dakota legislature.  We have not given up in those five years in spite of set backs, we have kept the faith in fertilizing that seed of hope.  Let our victory this year sprout a tree of knowledge for all the world to see.  Jesus said, “I am the vine, you are the branches.”   By their fruits ye shall know them.  Let the fruit of life spring forth in this nation that will change the tide of history and alter the destiny of mankind.  

     May you all have a very Happy and Blessed Easter!
