Easter. Not the pagan worship of the goddess Ishtar. Not the festival of eggs and bunnies. No. The celebration of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, Son of Man! Over 2000 years ago, God poured out his whole wrath onto one man, Jesus Christ, so that we sinners may have the hope of salvation! Everything- lust, envy, hate, unfaithfulness, gluttony, murder, idolatry- these were all placed on the Messiah on the cross of God’s wrath so that the Scriptures could be fulfilled, and that we could have a chance of everlasting life in Heaven with our God! Jesus suffered an indefinite amount for us, out of love! He would rather suffer an incredibly agonizing and humiliating death than see God’s anger poured out on us in Hell! It is finished.
Three days later, Jesus was raised from the dead. Through his death and resurection, we have, by the grace of God, been given a chance for rebirth. By Jesus Christ we are saved and recieve eternal salvation. Thank the Lord! For this is not a time for mourning, but a time for celebration! We may now see the Glory of God! There is hope!
Today, pray for your salvation. Examine to see whether you are in the faith, test yourself. If your heart has not been in the right place lately, talk to God about it. Tell him your woes and frustrations and your hopes and your aspirations. You don’t have to speak in King James Version, just talk to Him how you would talk to me, or a close friend. Be willing and open and you will eventually hear His voice. Ask him to create within you a pure heart and a right spirit. Pray for forgiveness and know that He loves you. He truly does! If you don’t know Christ, but you want to, talk to the Lord and give Him your heart! It’s a great refreshing and wonderful feeling! Ask for salvation and know that Jesus Christ is Lord! There’s no better time than now to come to God and die to your sin! There’s no better time than now to renew your faith! If you have any questions whatsoever, comment, message me, ask me, email me, or facebook me! Hope your Easter Sunday was glorious!
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all!
"God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." 2 Corinthians 5:21
