They crucified Jesus on a Friday. I imagine the world grew dark and cold as His mother mourned the loss of her Precious Son. Oh the tears she shed as this mother’s heart was shattered.
But a new day was dawning …
On that third day, the stone rolled away from the tomb as God whispered, “Arise, My Love,” and Jesus arose from the dead!
Praise God Almighty, it’s resurrection day!
Our Jesus is alive!
The grave could not hold the KING!
It is my hope that today, Easter Sunday, you gather with your family and friends to celebrate the TRUE meaning of Easter. It isn’t about bunny rabbits or hiding pastel colored Easter eggs filled with candy. It is all about how Jesus laid down His life willingly for you and for me.
Jesus wasn’t held on that old rugged cross by those nails that pierced His skin. Jesus could have come down at any moment if He so chose, but His love for us all is what kept Him on that cross.
Jesus loved us so much that he laid down His life for us. Think about that for a minute.
He died so that we may LIVE eternally.
All we have to do is confess our sins, ask forgiveness, turn from our sinful ways, and ask Jesus to come into our hearts.
I pray that you’ve had that conversation with Jesus. If you haven’t, would you please right where you sit reading this … have a little talk with Jesus and invite Him into your heart.
NO matter what you’ve done in the past, He will forgive you if you only ask. Nothing you could have ever done in your past would prevent Jesus from loving you. There is NO condemnation in Christ. NONE.
So what are you waiting for? Say a simple, yet life changing prayer, asking Jesus to come into your heart and into your life as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
