Can you imagine what that first Easter morning must have been like? After three days of mourning Jesus’ death, his disciples and friends found that he was in fact alive and well. The only evidences of His death were the nail-scars on His body and the blood-stained graveclothes lying in the tomb. This is the real meaning of Easter: Jesus’ sacrifice to give us salvation and eternal life with Him.
“Why seek ye the living among the dead? for He is not here; but is risen.”
The Easter eggs, candy, and Easter dresses really don’t mean much. The reason for this day is that first Easter morning; there’s no other reason. Jesus Christ rose up from the dead so we could have salvation.
Happy Resurrection Day! That resurrection power is available to you and me. Have a blessed and happy Easter!
