As Resurrection Day is rapidly approaching I can’t stop thinking about what this precious celebration weekend means to us as Christians, followers of Jesus Christ. This weekend is not about Easter bunnies, Easter egg hunts or even Easter baskets. This beautiful weekend is about Jesus’ death, burial and RESURRECTION.
Jesus came to earth with one mission in mind…to seek and to save those who are lost. He willingly laid down His life on that Cross, and shed His precious blood for the remission of our sins. His sacrificial death upon the Cross was the ultimate price paid so that we could now come to God, through Jesus, and have fellowship with Him through our salvation experience. Not only was Jesus crucified, and buried, but He rose from the dead! What an awesome display of God’s power…
When we come to Christ, we now have that same Spirit dwelling on the inside of us, YES, the SAME Spirit that raised Christ! My goodness! That should make you want to shout! HE HAS RISEN! And so have you! You were once dead in your sins, but when you came to Christ He raised you into a new life in Him. Our old man is now dead, our new man (nature) is alive! Hallelujah!
Together let’s celebrate His Resurrection! He is alive! Happy Resurrection Day!
