Easter Sunday April 8th, 2012
He is Risen!!!
As we go about our day today let us not forget why we celebrate Easter. We celebrate in rememberance ofÂ how He lived,Â died, and ultimately how HeÂ rose and reigns today!Â Its not for eggs, or candy, or bunnies. Its not for family get togethers, grill outs, or good times. Its not forÂ new dresses, or fancy shoes, or feel good church services.Â If not for Christ’s resurrection we would have no hope…but because of it…we have everything! We do not serve a dead prophet…We serve anÂ all-mighty, sovereign, living Savior. The ResurrectionÂ fullfills prophecy andÂ gives usÂ forgiveness of sins, hopeÂ for what is to come, provision throughout our lives, and anÂ intimate relationship with our Creator. If Christ is not the Son of God then Christianity is the biggest joke of all and we as Christians are the biggest fools to ever live. If Christ is the Son of God, then He is everything.Â Have you experienced the redemption of Christ?? Do you know that you know that Jesus is the Son of God and that every word written in the Word of God is Truth?? If not, I would encourage you to explore that today. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!
Acts 4:12Â And there is salvation in no one else,Â for thereÂ is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.
