- A trial and a cross?
- An agonising death?
- A stone tomb?
- A man returned to life?
For many, Easter doesn’t mean much more than egg hunts, chocolate bunnies and family.
But what does Easter really mean?
For three days the lifeless body of Jesus lay in a tomb. With him lay the expectations of all who had followed him. This wonderful man whom his followers hoped would be the Messiah — the anticipated righteous King sent from God to rule their nation — was brutally seized, tried, tortured and left to die on a cross.
But on the third day, as Jesus had foretold, he rose from the dead to live, talk, and show himself again to hundreds of people. His resurrection was the ultimate proof of who he is and what he promised. He promises eternal life to all who believe in him.
The good news of Easter speaks to us today. Our sin separates us from God, our Creator. But because of his love for us, God acted by providing the resolution for that dilemma — Jesus Christ’s willing death to pay our sin-debt to God. Christ suffered once for sins, “the righteous for the unrighteous, that He might bring us to God.” (1 Peter 3:18)
You can experience a changed life made possible all because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. God wants you to experience for yourself what Easter is all about! Why not come along and find out more at Kensit Evangelical Church…..
