He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. (Matthew 5:8)
Today is Easter! It’s a time of remembrance and also a time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus! Because He is alive again, we can have life eternally, and abundantly when we allow Him to be Lord of our lives.
There’s so much power in His name! Jesus restored our life by rising again and what a beautiful Saviour He is. Many words come to mind on today when I think about what Jesus endured just for me and just for you. Here are just a few:
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.(John 15:13)
The beauty of this story is that with all power, He rose again, defeating death and the grave! There’s no greater love. That same love and resurrection power lives within us! We are grateful because we’ve done nothing to deserve His love, yet He loves us.
Today is a day of hope, wonder, and new understandings. My prayer is that you draw even closer to Jesus. In Him know that you are loved, you are forgiven, you are chosen, you are redeemed, and by his grace, you are restored!
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (Romans 5:8)
