Jesus … The Real Reason We Celebrate Easteron April 24th, 2011
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him.”
John 3:16-17 ESV
God came to Earth in the form of man, ministering to and teaching others, was rejected, tortured, was crucified for all of mans sins, died and was buried and on the third day He rose and is seated at the right hand of the father.
Jesus died on the cross for our sins, so that you and I might come to know Him, Jesus Christ, as our Lord and Savior.
By confessing with our mouths that we are sinners and Jesus is Lord and having Christ in our hearts and having a personal walk/ relationship with Christ, taking up our cross (Luke 9:23) and living each day for Him, we one day will spend Eternity in Heaven with our precious Jesus and all our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Easter IS NOT about the Easter bunny, Easter baskets, egg hunts or Easter eggs people.
EASTER IS ABOUT THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST.
(It’s also commonly referred to as Resurrection Day/ Sunday)
Let’s remember the real reason why we celebrate today…
Christ died for you and me and He has given us this wonderful opportunity to accept Him into our hearts and live our life for Him.
Do you know Jesus? Have you accepted Christ into your heart? Do you faithfully have a personal walk with Christ?
Jesus LOVES YOU.
No sin is too great that He won’t forgive you.
Do you know Jesus but have fallen off the path? Confess, repent your sins and continue to walk with Christ.
We all fall short of the glory of God, but our God is loving, faithful, forgiving and most importantly …
JESUS DIED TO SAVE YOU.
And I Thought I Loved You Then, My Greggie. What a view you have today My Love.
