Easter - Why We Remember

Easter - Why We Remember

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.

Easter is a time to remember. Not only that He died for us, but that He was raised to life for us. This is where our thoughts should always be. In remembrance of who He is and what He has done for all of us. When we remember this ultimate truth we are made aware of our standing on earth. We are not here to judge or be judged by anyone. All of who we are, have been and will be is found in Him. Let us take this lesson from Easter and apply it to every day we walk in the righteousness of God. The gift of our lives is a blessing to be reveled in as often as we take a breath.

Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.

Romans 8:34 NIV

As we remember what He has done for us, we must also remember how He did it. He came to earth fully God and fully man. However, He humbled Himself to navigate the world completely as a human. He showed us what it means to be obedient in all we do. Even in death He was obedient. Remembering that He also cried out to God in the garden of gethsemane to take away what He was called to do, but that an angel came to Him and strengthened Him. (Reference Luke 22:41-44) We can stand firmly in our trust of the same God and know that when we cry out we will also be strengthened to remain obedient in what we are called to. Let us remember what obedience looks like and how it is done this Easter.

And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!

Philippians 2:8 NIV

Considerations for your planner:

  • How do you remember what Christ has done for you each day? Write it out.
  • How are you humbled to walk as Christ did today? Write it down.
