Today is one of those holidays that people spend with family, eat a big meal, go hunting for toys and candy and many feel compelled to go to Church.
For me Easter is so much more and I don’t think I can believe what I do, and not tell you about it.
- I believe the Jesus died on the cross because no matter how hard I try, no matter how ‘good’ I am I can never be sinless. I can never repent enough, make enough sacrifices, give enough money to have my sins washed away and go to heaven.
- I believe that Jesus was buried for 3 days, HE WAS DEAD.
- I believe that Jesus rose from the dead, forgiving all our sins and with faith, because of this we can go to heaven.
But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. 5 And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, 7 that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.” 8 And they remembered his words, Luke 24:1-8
