Easter Sunday is here! The parade of pastel color suits, Easter baskets, the Easter Bunny, Easter eggs, and jellybeans are everywhere! Dressed to the hilts, everyone is decked out for Easter church service and programs. But today is much more than that. It is Resurrection Sunday. It is the day that we celebrate Jesus Christ rising from the dead; the day that he offered his life for the forgiveness of our sins; the day that gives us the gift of eternal life. The resurrection of Jesus is noted in many bible verses including Luke 24:2-3; 1 Corinthians 15:12-19; John 11:25-26; Peter 1:3-4; Acts 24: 16,21; Acts 4:33; and Matthew 27: 52-54. Jesus paid the price for our sins. As John 3:16 tells us, “God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” What a mighty God we serve! His grace, love, mercy, compassion – are far reaching. Today and everyday, we should praise him in worship; in song; in all things! Our Blessed Savior; He’s worthy to be praised!
