WHAT EASTER MEANS TO ME + A SONG!

It’s easy to get caught up in the commercialization of Easter, with the popularity of Easter eggs and Easter bunnies. It would be kinda sad to go through this all too important easter season without acknowledging what this holiday is really about. It is the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; the most important moment in history (in my opinion).

In an act of unparalleled love, God came down in the person of  His son, Jesus Christ who although equal to God, lived and died as a human. He bore our sins in agony and torture and gave his last breath for us. He gave His life as a ransom for our sins, giving us the beautiful gift of forgiveness and access to a relationship with God.

The message of Christianity at its core is really one of love and grace. God loves us unconditionally and there is nothing we can do to make Him love us more and nothing we can do to make Him love us less. We cannot earn His forgiveness. It was a gift given freely. It’s just up to us to accept it and open it up. By doing so, we can experience God and be inspired by His Spirit to live a life that is pleasing to Him. To be a believer is not about following rules, it’s about two things as Jesus put it perfectly: “To love the Lord with all your heart, soul and mind, and, to love your neighbour as yourself. (Matthew 22:36-40)

On these two simple yet incredibly important things, we can be guaranteed a fulfilled life.

A song that perfectly captures what Easter means to me is Mighty Cross by Elevation Worship. Have a listen:

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a lovely Easter.

INSPO OF THE DAY: 20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20 NIV)
