But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
–Romans 5:8 NIV
Most of us know what Easter is about: a perfect Man (Jesus) giving His life for an incredibly imperfect world … dying as a substitute for all of us … so that we could have an incredibly fantastic relationship with the God of the universe!!! What a gift! But wait, it doesn’t stop there! He (Jesus) then rose from the dead — HE OVERCAME DEATH!!! He’s alive forever, and offers us that same life! Kinda hard to believe, isn’t it?
But it’s true, and this is what we observe, and celebrate, this weekend. So as you go about your day today—whether you spend the day in a mad dash to be ready for tomorrow, attending a neighborhood Easter egg hunt, or planting some spring flowers—let God speak to you of His power, His victory, His love. His love that still reaches out, His power that still changes lives, His victory that still offers eternal life!
Happy Easter Saturday! May your day be filled with blessing after blessing, reminding you of God’s amazing love for you!
- Thank God for His power to raise Jesus from the dead!
- Ask Him to help you see His power at work in your life … today, tomorrow, forever!
