He Is Risen, Happy Resurrection Sunday
What does the resurrection of Jesus mean to you? It means He conquered death to me.
When you invite Jesus into your heart, He comes in by way of the Holy Spirit. He lives inside you. Now you have the resurrection power of Jesus in you. When you die, you too will rise, in the twinkling of an eye, you will be transferred to heaven.
You are not saved from death based on your performance. You are saved from death because of what Jesus did on the cross. He died in your place. You will never be perfect enough to approach the throne of holy God. You must come through the blood of Jesus that He poured out on the cross.
Happy Resurrection Sunday. I prefer to say it that way because the term
Easter originated with a pre-christian goddess in England, Eostre, who was celebrated in spring. Easter actually began as a rite of spring and was a pagan festival.
I, personally feel, the word takes away from the real meaning, Jesus rising again and conquering death. You may say that is trivial, but the devil uses sly ways to change the true meaning of the gospel whenever and wherever he can.
Happy Resurrection Sunday.
