Commentary By: Gordon King
Cute little bunnies, children frolicking to and fro in search of Easter eggs, chocolate candy, and a spiral ham dinner, Easter Sunday! Traditions passed on for generations, yet how many people, how many Christians actually celebrate this wonderful occasion for what it really is?!
This is the day that the Lord has made, this is the day of His resurrection from the dead, His defeat over sin and over death! The one and only Savior of the world, crucified on the cross as a sacrifice for all the sins of the world, past, present, and future! Buried for three days, raised to life, forever!
What does this all actually mean for us? Well, it means that we can have life after death, that after our physical death there is eternity. It means that we can choose between eternal life or eternal death. That if we choose to believe and follow the Savior, to turn our lives over to Him, then we shall have eternal life forever! Death has lost its sting, physical death for the believer is merely passing from the natural to the supernatural! From physical life to eternal life, forever with God!
It means that if we choose to believe, than all of our sins will be forgiven, that we have life within us, we are a new creation, filled with the Spirit and power of God Almighty! It means that Satan and his demons no longer have power or control over us, that we have defeated them in Christ!
It means that we have the power of God within us, that He is with us at all times while we are alive here on earth, to help us, provide for us, to bless us, and to comfort us!
Jesus Christ, blessed is He who gave Himself for the world.
A Savior, born for our iniquities and transgressions, taking them all upon Himself.
Beaten, mocked, and scorned, put to death by those He came to save.
Raised up on a cross and killed for sins He did not commit.
Buried in a tomb overcoming death and Hades.
Raised to life forever more, ascending into heaven to sit upon His throne.
Our God, our Lord, Jesus Christ, the only one who can save, the only way to heaven!
Jesus Christ, Lord God, my words cannot describe the thanks, the love, and the gratitude for what You have done for us! Only You are worthy to be praised, worshiped and honored! Your sacrifice and gift of life has given us what no one else could, eternity with You! Thank You so very much Lord, thank You Father for sacrificing Your Son on our behalf! There is no other expression of love so great as self-sacrifice. We honor You, praise You, and worship You and only You! In Jesus precious name I pray, Amen.
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
