The tomb is empty. Hallelujah! Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is alive and because He is alive, Christians around the world have reason to celebrate today. If Jesus were not alive; if the tomb was not empty, nothing else really matters. We would have no hope; we would still be living in our sins and we would leave this earth going into a lost eternity. The fact that Jesus was resurrected three days after being crucified for the forgiveness of our sins, we are assured that those who die in Christ will also rise again when Jesus Christ comes back to get His children. The Bible is true and God has promised us that those who have confessed with their mouths and believed in their hearts that Jesus died and rose again, will spend eternity with Him.
Today is a good day to ask Jesus into your heart and receive the forgiveness of your sins and the gift of eternal life. What more could you ask for? Jesus Christ went to Calvary so that we all could be saved and the Bible tells us that “whosoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” All you have to do is respond to that still small voice speaking to you, calling you to come near to God and if you do, He will accept you. He will forgive you, and He will put within you the power of His spirit to be more than a conqueror. You can then resist the devil and sin less and become more and more like Christ. Call out to Him and you will never be the same. If you have already answered His call and are walking in the newness of life, make it a point to re-dedicate and commit your time, talents and resources to bring others into the kingdom of God.
God is good. God is faithful. God is and will always be the one who will never leave you or forsake you. His love is unconditional and available to everyone. Don’t let the blood of Jesus go without taking advantage of everything it affords you – love, peace and a life with Almighty God. Happy Easter to every one who has eaten the bread and drank the cup that Jesus is offering as a token of His Father’s love and forgiveness for you!
