Easter is a time when we celebrate the fact that Jesus died for our sins. We focus on the fact that Jesus died for our sins so that we can be forgiven. As humans, we introduced sin into the world back in the garden of Eden. Death was not a part of Gods original plan for any of us.
The cross is very important to Christianity and is much revered. We all know that Jesus died for us on the cross so that we can live. The price for sin was death, and God came to pay that price. Yes, our human bodies still die, but then we are resurected and our souls go to heaven. This is the same thing that happened to Jesus.
Yes, that is right! The story of Jesus and Easter do not end on the cross. Jesus came back from the dead and is very much alive today. Jesus conqered the grave and overcame death. We can too! All we have to do is believe in him and follow him.
Easter is the day we celebrate the greatest day in history! God loves us and wants us to have eternal life with him.
Happy Easter to all!!
