To the world it means that the perfect plan of salvation has been
provided . . .
"I declare unto you the gospel . . . that Christ died for our sins
according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the
third day according to the Scriptures." 1
"But God commendeth His love toward us, in that,
while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
To God it means that He is satisfied with the work of His Son . .
"Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He
might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but made alive by the
spirit." 1 Peter 3:18
To the believer it is the promise of everlasting life . . .
Jesus promises, "Because I live, you shall live also." John "He that heareth
My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath
everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from
death unto life." John 5:24
To you it is a challenge to believe . . .
Jesus claims, "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live." John 11:25
"If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord
Jesus, and shalt believe in thine
heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt
be saved." Romans 10:9
can know the true meaning of Easter in your life today by taking these steps:
- Recognize that without Christ you are separated from God. In honest
repentance admit your need to be saved: "For all have sinned, and
come short of the glory of God" (Romans ).
- Realize that God loves you, and believe that Jesus Christ died for your
sins: "For God so loved the world, that He
gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not
perish, but have everlasting life" (John ).
- Receive the risen Christ into your life by faith, and trust Him as your
Savior: "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become
the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name" (John 1:12).
