Just a few months ago we were celebrating Christmas. If you remember we said, “Jesus is the reason for the season.” That is true; the birth of Christ is what we celebrate at Christmas.
Now we are just a few days from Easter Sunday. I can with all assurance declare, “Jesus is Easter!” Easter is the celebration of life and that is all contained in the glorious resurrection.
John chapter twenty carries the historical account of what happened after the trial and public death of our Lord. Jesus gave up His life. Jesus was not executed or killed by the sponsorship of Romans and Religions. Jesus gave up His life for our soul’s salvation.
In John 20: 16-17, Jesus said unto Mary, “Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father, and to my God, and your God.”
Mary told the disciples, “I saw Jesus, I was at the tomb, it was empty! He spoke to me, called me by my name. Jesus is alive!”
Spring time, green grass, baby chicks, and bunny rabbits all are associated with Easter.
Yet, the real Easter is Jesus. He was dead, now He is alive for evermore!
You are loved,
