Easter is a short time away. Join us in preparation by looking at what Easter really means. Each week on Wednesday leading up to Easter we will post a brief, but powerful reminder.
What a powerful scripture this is. Words that can speak right to our souls and make firm the foundation of our lives. God not only raised Jesus from the dead, but it is a foreshadowing to what He is going to do for us. Easter is a time to be fortified in what the foundation of our life is. When our life is founded on Christ, we know that we will rise again. Death is not the final say in our existence. Believing in who Christ is and what He did for us means that we believe in eternity. We can hold tightly to the promises of God and know there is more to this life than what the world presents to us. We must take this Easter realization with us through all the days of our lives.
1 Corinthians 6:14 NIV
If we didn’t get it the first time, God has been so kind to us to state it again. Death no longer has mastery over anything. He is everything. When we accept Christ into our lives we accept this new life. A life undeterred by death. This new life is one of certainty and validation in doing things unlike the way the world does things. What is there left to conquer when death has been conquered. Easter reminds us of the eternal things we now stand in, live in and will inherit. “He cannot die again.” This is the Easter promise we can carry with us throughout the year. To remind us of who we are and the strength that resides within us through Christ our Savior.
Romans 6:9 NIV
Considerations for your planner:
- How do you believe in what Christ did for us? Write it out.
- Do you carry the Easter promise into each day? Write out what it means to you each day as a reminder.
