5 Reasons to Celebrate Easter

We are free.

Jesus’s death and resurrection means 1. We no longer need to pay a penalty for our wrong actions. Jesus paid it. 2. We are free from the desire to knowingly do things that go against God’s instructions. 3. We will go to Heaven where there is no sin because everything is in agreement with God. Freedom!

We have eternal life.

I feared death when I thought of the never-ending torture from evil without the hope of goodness. Thanks to Christ Jesus my relationship with death has changed. Believers need not fear death but embrace it in God’s timing because we will go home to our heavenly Father. No torture! Praise God!

“…the righteous is taken away from the evil to come”. (Isaiah 57:1)“we trustand we long to depart from the body and to be with Our Lord.”

We have the Holy Spirit.

Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would live inside everyone who believes in their heart that He is their Savior and speak that truth. God’s Holy Spirit teaches, corrects, strengthens, and comforts. The Holy Spirit makes us a new creation with life giving resurrection power!

“The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.” (Romans 6: 10-11)

We are precious.

I’ve had experiences that left me feeling like I am of little worth. In those times I’m reminded that it is important to Christ, that I live forever with purpose. Christ Jesus showed that we are all priceless!

“Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” (1 Peter 1:18-20)

We are assured of God’s love and faithfulness.

Has someone ever kept a promise to help you? An honored promise brings relief. God promised to send the Savior and to pour out His Spirit on all believers. And He did! God is a promise-keeper! If you ever doubt God’s love for you remember Romans 8: 32

“Since he did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything?”
