The Meaning of Easter

by Pastor Ken

He said to them, “Don’t be amazed. You seek Jesus, the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen. He is not here. Behold, the place where they laid him!”

Mark 16:6

My wife and I spent one Easter on Easter Island, Chile, celebrating our anniversary.

We sat by the waterfront, eating excellent food, listening to waves coming in, and enjoying the beautiful sunset on the ocean.

That morning I had a dream. In the dream, Jesus embraced me. I welcomed Him, hugged Him. I realized I am one in Him. Since I have Jesus, and He has me, I can find peace and harmony anywhere, anytime. It was an endless Easter Encounter.

After I awoke, I suddenly discovered the real meaning of Easter.

Easter Is All About Jesus

Jesus was the One resurrected. He died and paid the price for our sins on the cross by shedding His precious blood. He was in the tomb, but He rose and defeated death forever for you and for me.

Easter Is All About You

When you accept Him as your Savior and Risen Lord, the promise of victory over death on Easter morning is yours. You do not fear death, for Jesus and you are one. You experience no fear of sins you have committed, for you are forgiven, and God sees you as He sees Jesus’ sinless character.

Easter is a promise that you will rise one day to be with Jesus forever.

Pray

Dear God,
Thank You for the risen Jesus.
I pray that one day soon, I will be able to see Him face to face and thank Him for His sacrifice on my behalf.
In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
