What is Easter Sunday ?
A promise for a better life and one of Joy
For a lot of people, Easter is just another holiday, a 3-day weekend of fun and no work, chocolate bunnies and Easter eggs. For Christians, the resurrection of Jesus from the dead means a promise...
It means hope of a better life and one of joy.
May the words, “He is not here, but He is risen” continue to change us.
Easter means victory… Victory over all the obstacles we face every day, death, and even the grave.
1 Corinthians 15 3
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day, that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.
1 Corinthians 15 42
So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, but it is raised imperishable; It is sown in dishonor, but it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, but it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, and it is raised a spiritual body.
Victory Over Our Obstacles.
Because of the resurrection we have eternal life. From the moment we receive Jesus into our lives, we have victory over death. Our physical body might fail us, but our souls will never die.
We become imperishable. In the resurrection, the angel said to the women at the tomb, "Why do you seek the living among the dead?" They did not understand, but they soon would. Instead of death, They spent the rest of their lives fascinated with life.
We were sown in dishonor, but because of the resurrection we are raised in the glory of the father. When we invite Jesus into our lives we are able to stand before God spotless, just as if we had never sinned.
We were sown in weakness but now we are raised in power.
The Bible says, "All power is given unto those who believe. Though we were dead, yet shall we live."
God is the God of second chance. He can turn things around when they seem most hopeless. And He will never forsake us.
No matter how unworthy or undeserving we may sometimes feel of his grace. When we invite him into our lives, he reaches down and lifts us into his everlasting arms.
Psalm 119 tells us there is never a mountain too high, never a sea too deep, and never a place too far that God cannot reach us.
God could have given us a blast of judgment. But instead offers the blessing of His redemption.
Today, He Has Risen! The empty tomb a reminder of who we serve….
As we celebrate Easter, let us focus on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Let us act in the power that God has given to us.
Let us be grateful of everything that has been washed away by his sacrifice.
Today may we celebrate and praise victory over our circumstances and the power He has given us in His redemption. And in our hearts we pray on this beautiful Easter Sunday. God Bless.
