Happy Resurrection Sunday to you and yours!
It’s about Jesus! Our risen Savior!
Easter is about a Passionate King! and the Promise He Kept!
For the Christian, the more appropriate name for Easter is Resurrection Sunday!
In our culture, it’s considered a holiday….but God intended it for a day of personal reflection and for a day of life evaluation. Jesus did not raise to life so we could have another party! Jesus didn’t raise to life so we could have another day to get the family together and have an egg hunt.
Jesus had a life that the grave could not keep. While He carried your sins to the grave and left them there, Jesus came out of that grave living, risen, and victorious!
When Jesus rose, you rose with Him. Christians are not just nice people, they are new creatures. We have, living in us, the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead. We have come out of the grave of the old life. Our old master has no more hold on us. The old debt has no more penalty that we have to pay.
When Jesus came out of that grave, we came out with Him and we have been raised to walk in newness of life.
