The world celebrates Easter with bunnies, chocolate, baskets and new clothes. As people of God, we know the real reason behind this season and it is Jesus!
While Jesus walked among people, He gave–by demonstrating how to love and treat one another. He also healed blessed, delivered, encouraged, corrected, chastised and saved (see the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). After dying a horrific death on the cross for EVERYONE’S sins, (yes–even that ornery neighbor), Jesus triumphantly rose again three days later, so we can all be saved by receiving the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38-39). Not only can we be saved and go to Heaven, we can live life abundantly here on Earth! (John 10:10). “Abundantly” does not mean trouble-free, or a guaranteed life on “Easy Street” mind you, rather, God does promise to take care of us (Matthew 6:25-34), and promises never to leave or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). Is that GOOD news or what?! Just these few reasons should prompt you to celebrate Jesus!
May God bless you and your family this Resurrection season and always!
