I Corinthians 15:20 (NIV) But Christ has indeed been risen from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
Easter Sunday, the day we celebrate the greatest event in human history is a joyful celebration. Churches across America as well as worldwide herald Jesus’ triumphant over the grave.
The victory of Easter, however, is not something that should be celebrated only one day a year. The victory of Easter gives us joy and peace every day of our lives as we trust in our crucified and risen Savior, Jesus Christ. Where else can hope be found in times like these? Easter tell us that death is no longer the end. Through faith in Christ, death becomes a gateway to paradise for all believers.
As you worship this Easter, perhaps with trumpets blaring and flowers blooming, remember we celebrate because Jesus tomb is empty!
