As we approach Easter, the world is preparing for Easter egg hunts, lots of chocolate, and fun times with our families. But let me encourage you, this Easter, let your family and friends know about the true meaning of Easter.
Easter is the most important Holiday we celebrate in the world. Why? Because, it is what makes what we believe as Christians, come alive! Jesus is Alive!
The Resurrection of Christ
All of the other religions in the world, have a belief system that centers around gods that are dead. But for Christians, we serve a God that is alive! Jesus is not dead but He is alive for evermore! The grave could not hold him. The devil could not dethrone Him. Man could not control Him!
He came with an assignment from His Father to carry out on the earth, but it would end in Heaven! When He presented His blood on the Mercy Seat in the Heavenly Tabernacle, He paid the price in redeeming us back to God!
Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin. But since He shed His blood for us, He paid the ultimate sacrifice so we could be saved, healed, delivered, and restored back to God! Because He is alive today, our sins can be forgiven!
Jesus Changed our Nature
When Adam and Eve disobeyed God, sin came into the world. Since that time, and up to today, every person born into this world, is born with a sin nature. Because Jesus was raised from the dead, when we believe in our heart, and confess with our mouth, that He is Lord, at that moment, He comes into our spirit and changes our sinful nature to His nature, that is sinless. We are saved and born-again when we make Jesus Lord!
Yes, we will still sin, but now there is a way to receive forgiveness for the times we sin as Christians. When we ask Him for forgiveness, the Bible teaches us He forgives and forgets our sin. He gives us a brand new start! So, if you have sinned today, just ask Him to forgive you! He will!
Having the nature of Christ living on the inside of us, is what enables us to overcome in this world! Jesus conquered death, hell, and the grave when God raised Him from the dead! We have been raised up with Him and sit with Him spiritually in Heavenly places, far above all principalities, powers, in this world and in the world to come!
The devil is defeated and Jesus is Lord of all! Glory to God! You have His resurrection power inside of you! So walk fearlessly in this world. If the grave could not hold Him, it cannot hold you! Walk in His resurrection power here in the earth, and release that power into the lives of those around you!
This Easter is when people who never go to church will come! Make it a priority of yours, to take your loved ones to church this Easter! Invite your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and enemies to come and celebrate with you! I guarantee, you get them to church, God will take care of the rest!
Let us celebrate the true meaning of Easter, and announce to the world, Jesus is alive and alive for evermore! Tell them Jesus is Lord! Then tell them what He has done for you!
Seeing others receive Jesus as their Lord, is the greatest fulfillment you can ever experience! Go ahead, help Jesus reach others this Easter! There is nothing else you can do that will be more important! God loves you, but He also loves them! Help Him reach them! You were once just like them!
