Why Jesus and Easter Matters

There is a God and He loves you. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Everyone is a sinner and our sin separates us from the love that God wants to express toward us  “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23) “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you…” (Isaiah 59:2).

Jesus came to break down the barrier of sin. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).

The death of Jesus satisfied all the requirements, but Jesus did not stay dead. Three days later – Easter morning, He arose from the grave by His own power. “He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.” (Matthew 28:6) “No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.”(John 10:18)

Having a relationship with God is not about being good or religious. It is claiming the work Jesus fulfilled on the cross.

Jesus said in John 6:47, “He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”

Those who trust in Jesus are saved from the penalty and power of sin and will have eternal life in Heaven with God.

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).

Place your trust in Jesus today.
