Easter is the pinnacle celebration in the Christian faith. Jesus- fully God, fully man- came down to earth to live the perfect life we should have lived. He suffered and died for our sin, taking the wrath of God upon Himself and clothing us with His righteousness.
“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit” 1 Peter 3:18
On Easter- Jesus RAISED from the dead, conquering sin, Satan and death.
At our church, Pastor Kevin has been teaching through Luke. We are nearing the end and the past few weeks have been leading up to the crucifixion and resurrection. These sermons have been so amazingly good and I encourage you to listen (or re-listen!) to the ones from the past few weeks to prepare your heart for Easter!
What are some other things you do to keep Jesus the main thing while celebrating Easter?
