Do you know the real meaning of Easter? Not the bank holidays, the cute little chicks or the giant bunny (what exactly is that all about anyway?!) who delivers our chocolate. But the message of new life and hope, that comes as a free gift?
Do you know why Jesus, the son of God came to this earth?
Jesus didn't come in order to remain a tiny baby, born in a stable for us all to cherish and coo over. Although I'm sure he was cute, babies don't exactly do a lot do they?! No, Jesus came to earth so that he could become a man, one who was later despised, tortured and eventually left on a cross to die.
That was just the beginning of this incredible but true story. It ends with a beautiful message of hope and restoration, as God fulfills His promise of providing new life for us all, an eternity with Him, through Jesus' resurrection.
You are chosen, unique and blemish free;
I have a purpose, one that you have yet to see.
You are restored, redeemed and justified;
Stop being controlled by the hurt of satan's lies.
You are perfect, a cherished child of God;
Come to me and I will reveal the power of my blood.
Open up your eyes to see my promises are true;
This gift is for the taking, that's all I ask of you.
It's a simple story of love. Will you accept the gift this Easter?
If you declare with your mouth "Jesus is Lord", and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10 v 9
