Easter? What does it all mean?
Easter is the time people celebrate Jesus Christ rising from the dead. What does that all mean? Here's the lowdown:
After Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross, people went to Jesus's tomb to prepare His body for burial. However...
They went in, but they didn’t find the body of the Lord Jesus. As they stood there puzzled, two men suddenly appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes. (from Luke Chapter 24 Verses 3-4 in the Bible)
The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, "Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what He told you back in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that He would rise again on the third day." (from Luke Chapter 24 Verses 5-7 in the Bible)
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. (from Romans Chapter 3 Verse 23 in the Bible)
Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but He died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but He was raised to life in the Spirit. (from 1 Peter Chapter 3 Verse 18)
We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. (from Romans Chapter 3 Verse 22 in the Bible)
For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. (from John Chapter 3 Verse 16 in the Bible)
But if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. (from 1 John Chapter 1 Verse 9 in the Bible)
For "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." (from Romans Chapter 10 Verse 13 in the Bible)
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, "Anyone who trusts in Him will never be disgraced." (from Romans Chapter 10 Verses 9-11 in the Bible)
Can we boast, then, that we have done anything to be accepted by God? No, because our acquittal is not based on obeying the law. It is based on faith. (from Romans Chapter 3 Verse 27 in the Bible)
