Easter is an important moment every year as we reflect on the sacrifice made by our lord and saviour Jesus Christ on the cross. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. During Easter, we celebrate Jesus Christ rising from the dead .The death on the cross was God demonstrating his own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.
Jesus rose from the dead and now lives in heaven with God His Father. Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. He offers us the gift of eternal life and of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Saviour. Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me.” Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday; now He offers to you the gift of eternal life and forgiveness of sins.
God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name.” You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.
The Bible says “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” God is perfect and holy, and our sins separate us from God forever. The Bible says “The wages of sin is death.” Thank you Lord for your perfect love that surpasses all understanding.
