Because Jesus Lives

What we remember today is the most important event of all time!

This event was Jesus dying on the cross, taking the punishment for our sins, and rising victoriously from the dead.

Because of what Jesus did, we can:
- be forgiven and cleansed from our sins
- be made right with God
- walk with Him
- live with Him in Heaven for all of eternity

Jesus’ saving work on the cross is open to everyone - IF we will personally realize our need for a Savior, confess our sins to Him, trust in Him to save us, and receive Him as our Lord and Savior.

Romans 10:9, "That 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."

When this is real in our lives, then we can have the relationship with the Lord that we were created for and grow in knowing, loving, and living for Him!

There is nothing greater about which to rejoice!!!

May today be a meaningful day of rejoicing in Jesus’ resurrection, treasuring your salvation, and standing in awe of the love the Lord had to reach out to us that we might walk with Him and live with Him forever!

Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
