This weekend, Christians around the world are celebrating the death and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. For me, it is a time of joy and jubilation as I think about how much God loves me, that He would give His only son to not only die for me, but for the whole world. It is an incredible truth.
Here are three things that we should all remember not only at Easter but in every season of our life:
In Luke 24:1-8, Mary Magdalene and a few other women found the tomb stone rolled away. Then an angel of the Lord appeared to them and said “He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee.”
This shows that at that time of sadness and hopelessness they had forgotten what Jesus had told them. So let us be a people who don’t forget what God told us when we find ourselves in tough situations.
His death paid for every sin we have and we will ever commit. This doesn’t mean that we should go on sinning. Instead, we should rejoice that we have been forgiven and we can draw close to God without a doubt. So anytime the enemy whispers in your ear that you are not forgiven and tries to condemn you, stare right back at him and tell him to shut his voice of accusation up! Cos you are a child of God and you have been fully forgiven!
When Mary Magdalene and the other women found out about the resurrection of Jesus, they went to share the good news with the other disciples. In all situations, let us not forget to share the good news of what God has done for us and is still doing for us. Share it with your family, share it with your friends, share it with you co-workers, share it with your class-mates. Share it with anyone who is willing to listen!
Be blessed as you celebrate His resurrection and the new life He has made available for you.
