Easter Celebration

The celebration of Easter is the Celebration of Christ’s resurrection from the dead. This is foundational to the Christian faith. We know from Paul’s letter to the Church of Rome Romans 6:23 that the wage of sin is death. All sinners are condemned to death (eternal separation form God). There is nothing we can do on your own, that will make up for your past sins. It is only by God’s grace that anyone is forgiven.

Because God is just, someone has to die to pay the debt we owe to God for our sinful nature. For the death be substitutionary and not to be for the punishment of that man, the man whom must die on our behalf, had to be is a sinless man. Jesus was the sinless man.

Jesus was not only fully man, he was fully God, as part of the trinity. Because of this, his death was able to redeem not just one man, but all mankind. He suffered an excruciating literal death, on our behalf. He paid the debt of all those who would call upon his name, repent of their sins, and become his follower. No sin is too great, except denial, the rejection of him as savior.

In Jesus’ time on earth, there were many who though they were sinless or good enough in keeping the law and the commandments that they did not need a savoir. Jesus called them deceived. John 1:8, & Romans 3:23 To this day there are those that believe that if the good they do outweighs the sin in their hearts that they will be saved. Jesus was clear that only through him is there salvation. John 14:6

The proof of Jesus power to save is in the strength of the miracles he preformed in his life on Earth, and most pointedly in his resurrection conquering death. In the days and weeks after his resurrection he was seen by more than 500 people. He was deliberate to tell them the meaning of his resurrection. Mark 28:16-20

For one of his beloved disciples (Thomas) who was not with the other disciples when Jesus he first appeared to them, Jesus came back, just for Thomas. Is it hard to believe sometimes? Of course, Jesus would not have come back just to visit with Thomas if he did not understand that.

Yes, the story is spectacular. To believe that God loves humanity so much, as to sacrifices his son, so that there might be a pathway to forgiveness, is truly extraordinary.
