WE BASK IN THE "SONSHINE" OF EASTER AND OF THE EMPTY TOMB!
Easter is the most important holiday of the Christian Church! But, it is also the most important day for the entire world. Because on this day the impossible happened!
JESUS DIED! JESUS WAS BURIED! AND JESUS CAME BACK TO LIFE! TO LIVE ETERNALLY!
That never happened before! Ever! That will never happen again! Ever! And that is the one thing that differentiates Christianity from every other religion. Most religions follow a man, a hero who has died! Christianity follows a man, a hero who was dead, but is not alive and lives eternally.
And because Jesus lives, so shall we! God's promise to us!
Jesus died to be the atonement for every single sin of every single sinner who had ever, or will ever live on the face of this earth! Easter tells us that God accepted that payment in full, Jesus' work of saving mankind is over, and eternal life belongs to everyone who believes in Jesus.
Because Jesus has covered us with His blood and His righteousness, God sees us as perfect, sinless children of God. And because of that we have a home in heaven waiting for us.
Because we believe in Jesus, we have a God who walks with us every step of our life, and makes sure that nothing happens to us, that God doesn't approve. And then we have a God who when we face death is still walking with us, and simply takes us by the hand and leads us home to Heaven!
That is what Easter is all about!
And that is why WE B ASK IN THE "SONSHINE" OF EASTER AND OF THE EMPTY TOMB!
