Happy Easter... Thank You Jesus for everything!
It's Good Friday and I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter! I hope you had an absolutely fantastic Holy Week and have a beautiful Easter Weekend with your family, loved ones and church congregation.
We celebrate Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday because it's a big deal. In fact, it's a massive deal because we know and celebrate the fact that Jesus is ALIVE!!
Jesus is a healer, provider, example, friend, saviour, King. He is all these things and more.
On this day, April 14th 2017, we have so much to be thankful for. To start with, Jesus has a different standard of righteousness that we are called to follow. We should all want to be more like Jesus, pure and true. (I will touch on that a bit more in a minute)
Lambs, goats and rams used to get sacrificed, but Jesus was the last sacrifice that was made for our sins. He was all we needed because, He had the power to set us free/ liberate us and forgive us of our sins.
Jesus, the only perfect man to walk this earth suffered a great deal so that WE could have life and be FREE! Thank You Jesus! You met us at the cross and took our place, so we could have eternal life. That act of love, selflessness is worth celebrating and sharing. We celebrate today because even though the events are dark, Jesus laid down His life for us and brought us into the light!! No one took it, He came so that we could have life in abundance.
Give thanks to Jesus with me because true love meant that He was obedient and sacrificed His life by dying on a cross.
Did you know that only the vilest of criminals were put to death on a cross? But Jesus, the most innocent men, a man greater than anything, was treated like a nasty criminal.
They hung our saviour on a tree/ cross, up on the hill at Golgotha/Calvary; just outside of Jerusalem so that He could be humiliated and put to shame for everyone to see.
After all of that, the good news comes... John 20:1-10
Friday, today; Jesus was killed and placed in a sealed tomb, BUT 3 days later, Monday, He was not in the tomb that had the humungous stone at the entrance. Jesus is RISEN! On Monday, all of them years ago, He was raised by the spirit of holiness. Hallelujah Lord!
We are celebrating because the resurrection power fixed Him up, made Him better, took Him out of darkness, gave Him power, healed His wounds and gave Him a name above all names.
Jesus successfully conquered the issue of death and hell, they no longer have the power to hold us down and satan has lost his power. Praise The Lord!
When you live right before God, God will bless you and deliver you. (Here's what I wanted to save till last.) The resurrection power now lives inside of us. So the standard of righteousness that Jesus has is in us, but it can't just stay in us; we have to live it out for the whole world to see. This means that we need to act out the Fruits of the Spirit. Jesus was a remarkable example of the Fruits of the Spirit and so we must live like Jesus, be the Jesus that many people have never seen and live with:-

Be blessed, Happy Easter and Keep Jesus In 1st Place!
