The Reason for the Season // Easter

Happy Easter my friends! 

"He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay." ~ Matthew 28:6 KJV 
The world has hijacked Easter (as it has almost every other holiday) making it seem like it's all about Easter egg hunts and the Easter bunny. But the real meaning of Easter is still alive in many of our hearts, just as Christ is alive from the grave.

Easter is a time for us to celebrate the Lord's resurrection from the dead. It's a celebration because, although Jesus died for our sins, He's didn't stay dead. He rose from the dead!

Jesus first sacrificed himself to a horrible death and took the sins of the world upon himself, showing us His love for us. Jesus died for you and me.

But the story didn't end there. As amazed as we are at Jesus willingly giving up His life for sinners; people who are enemies of God; it's even more amazing when Jesus shows us His power to overcome the grave by rising again.

Because in the end, God doesn't let evil win. It may seem to have it's power over this world now, but when it's all said and done, God always is the One Who is victorious.

Christ's resurrection from the dead gives us the hope that when we die, our soul will also be raised to be with Christ in heaven, if we've accepted and trusted in Him as the only way to salvation.

It gives us something to look forward to; that we have a Savior Who conquered death and is sitting at the right hand of God making intercession for us.

Is Jesus Christ alive in your heart?
"...how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures." ~ 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV
