THIS IS EASTER

April 20, 2017

 

 This is Easter...

 

Easter is Easter Friday.

When we remember and recognise that Jesus dies on the cross. Jesus gave the ultimate gift. His life.

We are all born distant from God. Separated from a relationship with the God who made us. We are separated by what the Bible calls “sin”. Sin is us failing to meet what God expects from his creation and can be in how we act, our attitude, and or nature.

And with sin comes a consequence. Death. Spiritual death.

But Jesus came to die on the cross to cover the consequences of our sin. As the Bible tells us, he died for us. He died on the cross for all. Just like in our game we had a range of ages, gender and ethnicity, Jesus died for all.

And this he did freely.

Easter is Easter Friday. When we remember and recognise that Jesus dies on the cross. Jesus gave the ultimate gift. His life. This is Easter.

 

Easter is Easter Saturday.

When we remember and recognise that Jesus was buried and placed in a grave. But that was not the end. There is hope.

It is at this point that all seemed lost. Jesus was gone and buried. The enemy had won. How could there be life, Jesus was dead.

What do we do now? Can we find someone who can solve our problem of being separated from God? Jesus is dead. He is buried in a grave. Easter Saturday is a day of hope. All is not what it seems. There is hope. Hope in what is to come. This is God’s gift to us, Hope.

What is Easter. Easter is Easter Saturday. When we remember and recognise that Jesus was buried and placed in a grave. But that was not the end. There is hope. This is Easter.

 

Easter is Easter Sunday.

Today. When we remember and recognise that Jesus rose to life and lives. He lives!

Jesus died. But he didn’t stay dead. Jesus came back to life to prove that death had no power over him. Jesus death paid the proice for sin, Jesus resurrection, coming to life again showed that there is nothing that can stand in the way of Jesus saving us from our sin. Not even death.

This may seem impossible to us. Like trying to unwrap an easter egg with chopsticks. But it is true. Jesus rose from the dead. This is why we can have life, because Jesus lives. This is God’s gift to us. Life in Christ.

What is Easter. Easter is Easter Sunday. Today. When we remember and recognise that Jesus rose to life and lives. He lives! This is Easter.

 

This is Easter. That Jesus died, was buried, and rose again. This is Easter, the God’s gift of life is through Jesus.
