Easter Message


John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
 
As I have meditated on Easter and looked closely at the cross and the resurrection, I would have to say the repeating thought I have found myself considering is that when Jesus gave His life to pay for all the sins of the world, it was… 

ALL the sins of the world. Every sin, past sin, present sin, and future sin.

Every sin fully paid for… 

Paid in all,

With the blood of Jesus pouring down that cross.

A perfect, Holy, and sinless life paid the price for all humanity.

A free gift of salvation offered to all.

But—

It is an offered gift that has to be accepted by faith to receive eternal life.

Thank You, Jesus for dying for me. Thank You, Lord, for coming to earth in human form and going to the cross to redeem me from my sins. Because You rose from the dead, death has no victory over me. I have eternal life with You and I thank You with all of my heart. 

Today and through this upcoming Easter week and beyond - I rejoice because Jesus is a Living Savior!

The power of His resurrection lives in you and me, fellow believers!

He is risen! He is risen indeed!

Have a Blessed Easter! 

John 14:6
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 10:9 That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 

Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
