Happy Resurrection Sunday! He is not here. He has risen!

He is Risen! Celebrate the SaviorJesus was crucified. He was resurrected from the dead. On the third day he rose. He did as he promised. He is not here. He has risen! (Luke 24:6).

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life, He who believes in me will live, even though he dies, and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this? Yes, Lord, she told him, “I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world” (John 11:25-27). How wonderful is this assurance and certainty to those who believe. “Because I live, you will also live” (John 14:19).

Jesus went to prepare a place for the faithful. Celebrate the Savior. He will return one day and bring us to our place with him in the place he has prepared for us in heaven. “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am” (John 14:3).

Celebrate Christ’s resurrection not just once a year but every day. Because of the resurrection, He gave us victory over sin and death. Death is not the end. Life after death is promised. Isn’t that Good News! We too will be raised from the dead to live forever with Christ Jesus.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him (John 3:16-17).

Happy Resurrection Sunday!

Matthew 28:5-7; 9 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. 6 “He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. 7 “Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.”… 9 Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said.

He is Risen! Celebrate Jesus Christ our Savior!

He is Risen! Celebrate the SaviorOn Sunday many will celebrate the Easter holiday with family and friends, sharing Easter eggs, Easter dinner, and chocolate bunny rabbits. Some will be dressed in pastel colored clothes and watch children enjoy candy-filled Easter baskets.

For believers, the real reason why we celebrate the day; our Lord Jesus Christ was resurrected. It is the miraculous event. He is risen! Celebrate his resurrection! For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

Jesus was forced to bear his own cross. With nail-scarred hands, they nailed him to and hung him between two thieves on the cross. He was persecuted and beat. He was wounded; nails were driven through his feet. They placed a crown of thorns on his head. They pierced his side later to make sure he was dead. He shed his blood. He was crucified, nailed to the cross. He sacrificed his life, buried and nailed all our sins to the cross.

They buried him in a tomb. A large stone was placed in front to seal it. Soldiers stood on guard to watch over it. An angel rolled back the stone. On the third day Jesus rose. An angel announced on the third day Jesus was no longer in the tomb. They told them to go and see for themselves. When they went to see, Jesus met and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him. (Matthew 28:9)

This is what the day, Easter Sunday, is truly about; our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was crucified, died, and rose again for atonement of our sins. He knew he would suffer… “and He said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day, and that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem’” (Luke 24:46-47).

He knew his Father’s will and laid down his life for us. He paid the price on the cross for us. “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve others, and to give His life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45).” As you celebrate Easter, celebrate what Christ did for us. He took our punishment. He died for us. Rejoice! Christ loves us.

His resurrection is so important. Celebrate not just today.  Celebrate Jesus’ resurrection every day. He is risen! Celebrate Jesus Christ our Savior!
