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.
Celebrating the resurrection of Christ is the greatest gift. This is not just a celebration of His life, but also of our own. It is a proclamation of freedom from sin and the hold the world had on us. We no longer have to be imprisoned by sin. We have freedom to live eternally as Christ paved the way with His life, death, and resurrection. While it's certainly something we should do every day, Easter is a day set aside to acknowledge the great freedom available through Christ. He deserves all our praise. When we believe in what He has done for us the world opens up and death no longer has a hold on us.
John 11:25-26 NIV
Praise is an incredible gift we have been given. Knowing that our Father in heaven loved us so much that He gave His only son for us should fill us with unending joy for our own lives. We are loved beyond measure. Easter is a celebration of this new life that we received when Jesus rose on the third day after His death on the cross. We have all sinned, but are reborn each day we give our lives to Him. This is because we acknowledge our need for our dependence on Him and trust His provision for our lives.
1 Peter 1:3 NIV
Considerations for your planner:
- How do you acknowledge what Christ has done each day? Write it down.
- Have you praised God for your life today and the freedom you can have in Him? Write down all that you are grateful for today.
