The tomb is empty, He is risen. The debt and the wages for our sin have been paid by Jesus. We could not do it ourselves for in ourselves we are not pure and holy; our righteousness is as filthy rags. Only when we accept Jesus as our Savior do we receive pureness, righteousness and holiness. It is HIS PURENESS, HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS and HIS HOLINESS.
The Good News of the Gospel is that Jesus not only died to take the judgment of our sin, BUT that God raised HIM up from the dead. The Bible says “the wages of sin is death” and because there was no sin in Jesus, death could not hold Him. He purchased back the authority that was initially given to Adam; thus the reason Jesus is called the Last Adam. Sin entered the world by one man’s disobedience and Salvation entered the world by one man’s obedience. The power of Christianity is in the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead. Jesus did not come to condemn the world but to save to the world.
So let’s celebrate EASTER with great joy. Let’s celebrate EASTER with great praise and honor to the Savior of the world – Jesus.
Easter is more than the cute little bunnies , the colorful eggs we hide and find, and the wonderful candy. Easter is about the Saving Grace of Jesus being made available to all who will receive Him.
If you would like to make Jesus your Savior, pray this prayer.
“Heavenly Father, I believe in my heart that Jesus died for my sins, and that God raised Him from the dead so that I might be saved and have eternal life. I accept your forgiveness for all my sin. I confess Him to be my Savior and Lord, and now accept Him to live in me. I will live for Jesus from this day forward. I thank you Father for saving me and for giving me eternal life. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
HAPPY EASTER !
