“Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you””unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.”1 Corinthians 15:1-4
Doesn’t it seem that bad news is all around us? It’s not only the top story on the news or the main headline in the paper”¦it seems to fill our day.
But as believers, we know the best news we could ever hear”¦and we celebrate it this week.
Easter is the day we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the grave. This is the event that conquered sin”¦that conquered death”¦and that made it possible for you and me to have a personal relationship with God!
Perhaps, today, this is the first time you’ve ever heard or understood this Good News.
If so, I want to tell you something: Jesus died on the cross for you. He wore a crown of thorns and was nailed to a tree because He loves you. And He wants to have a personal relationship with you today.
If you haven’t already, I pray you will you accept Jesus as your Savior today. And if you have placed your faith in Christ, I challenge you to share that Good News with someone this week.
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Easter!
THIS EASTER SEASON, SHARE THE GOOD NEWS WITH SOMEONE WHO NEEDS TO HEAR IT!
