He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay (Matthew 28:6).
Easter is all about life. It's the celebration of Jesus' resurrection; that He conquered death. Jesus' life changed the course of history. The only reason why He was put on this earth was to die in the place of sinners, though He was completely holy and innocent. When He was crucified on the cross, He united Man with God, mending the broken relationship (to read more about that, click here). But it didn't stop there. See, even death could not overcome Jesus. On the third day, He rose from the grave and conquered death. As What A Beautiful Name by Hillsong says, "death could not hold [Him]."

The most vital part of Easter is the fact that Jesus resurrected. If He was still dead, then Christianity would be invalid. Jesus' death is important because He took away the punishment for sinners. His life is important because it testifies to His power and His deity.

Jesus' life can affect your life as well - in fact, it's as easy as ABC:
  1. A - Admit that you are a sinner. "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
  2. B - Believe that Jesus solely paid for your sin on the cross and that He is the only way to God. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).
  3. C - Commit your your life to Jesus. "Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act" (Psalm 37:5).
If you have any questions about committing your life to Jesus, feel free to contact me via the contact form. I'd be happy to chat with you and answer any questions you have.

Though it's been almost 2,000 years since Jesus' resurrection, it still continues to affect people all around the world, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, culture or situation. If you've walked with the Lord for many years, Jesus' life will continue to inspire you to live like Him. If you are just starting a relationship with Him, let me tell you that God will treat you as He does Jesus. When Jesus died on the cross for sinners (you and me), in that time frame He was treated like us. Instead of us getting the wrath of God, it was all upon Jesus. And now, we get to be treated as Sons of God, just as Jesus is treated now. We can have that life-changing personal relationship with God, spend eternal life with Him in heaven, and share the good news with others.

This Easter, I pray that you would truly apprehend the goodness and power of Jesus' life, death and resurrection.
