Congratulations Class of 2017! You made it! You did it! You should be proud of what you have accomplished. Spending 12 +/- years working towards something is something to be proud of and a memory to hold dear.
I would also like to congratulate another Class of 2017; those that have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior this year. A great accomplishment! You made it! You did it! As with graduating high school, or collage; having accepted Christ, who, on your behalf has defeated death and sin, is a lifelong milestone in your life. But this milestone is eternal and is given freely to those that believe and have committed themselves in obedience to Him and to His Gospel message.
I pray, as you walk through life, run through the rain or dance in the sunshine, do it with the hope HE gives us through faith and love. At points in your life, high….or low, you can always trust that Jesus will be there within your heart. He has gone on ahead of you; “to prepare a place for you”, John 14 : 2.
So, congrats to those who have graduated from death into life….a life in Christ!
