In keeping with my post yesterday this is a week full of no excuses here is why I didn’t post about Easter.
Easter is a BIG deal to me, it is truly the basis of my faith. But I didn’t think I could do it justice. I know I write a blog but the fact is I don’t feel that eloquent with words. Then today, after my “No Excuses post I realized just how silly that was…so here it goes.
Jesus died for MY sins, that is why I celebrate Easter. He died and then 3 days later rose again, this is the entire basis of my faith. Without Jesus taking on my sins and dying on the cross, I would not be forgiven. Grace would not exist if it wasn’t for His death and without grace, There is just no way anyone could be ‘good enough’ to get into heaven.

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
There it is plain and simple. I don’t know how else to explain it, that is why I celebrate Easter.
