Today is an incredible day for us Christians! It is the day we celebrate Christ’s resurrection from the dead after He took the weight of our sins on the cross. This is truly the most significant weekend in all of history. Without it, we could never be with God in heaven, but because of Jesus’ great sacrifice those who accept God are forgiven forever! This means that if you are a true follower of the living God, you are heaven-bound! You are forgiven! It is finished! There is nothing to fear in death, nothing to lose in Christ, and nothing that can separate you from the love of the Creator of heaven and earth! Too often, we overlook the value of this infinitely important act of complete mercy that God did for us. We fail to really grasp the gravity of this day. This is not a holiday for candy, bunnies, or flowers. This is the day that Christ did the impossible for US. A hopeless band of sinners. This is the day that Christ rose from the dead! He rose from the dead, people! Is that not amazing? Praise God for taking the heavy blow in our place and allowing us to live forever in heaven with Him. He is risen!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” – 1 Peter 1:3
