The real meaning of Easter.

It’s Easter and i am meditating on what God did for me. He sent His Son to die for me. I was living with an eternal death sentence but He saved me. He chose me and laid His life down so i could be free. This is what Easter is about.

At this time i can hear him shout out, “IT IS FINISHED”! Easter is a time of completion. It marked the time when Jesus Christ completed His mission.
He endured much so I could be free.
I was the one who was meant to die for my sins.
I was the one who did the wrong but instead Jesus Christ took my place! He took my place knowing full well what would happen. He knew He would be crucified. He knew He would be beaten and mocked. He knew He would be detested by people. He knew He would be whipped and beaten beyond recognition and yet He still died for you and me. He still took our place.
It is like an innocent man taking the place of someone on deathrow! That is unheard of! So we need to thank Jesus for what He has done.

But in this time a lot of people think Easter is about the Easter bunny and easter eggs and hot cross buns. But that is not it. Those things complement the meaning of Easter but they are not reason for Easter. The real reason behind Easter is Jesus Christ. He is the Son of God and He is calling you. He wants to have a relationship with you. All you need to do is accept Him into your life. Ask Him to come and live in your heart. It’s not too late for you. He loves you.

It’s ok to have easter eggs and it’s ok to eat hot cross buns but don’t miss the real meaning of Easter.
Easter is an amazing time. My desire is that you would come to know Him. And not just know about Him but to accept Him into your life. He is waiting for you to invite Him into your life.

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me. Revelation 3:20

That is what Jesus Christ is saying to you.

Happy Easter!
