So, as we all know today was Easter or better known as Resurrection Day, where Jesus got up from the cross with all power in His right hand. Every time this holiday comes around I get so excited because I am reminded of what my Savior did for me about 2,000 years ago, and not just my Savior but your Savior as well if you choose to believe in Him. If you don’t I really think you should reconsider because honestly, you’re missing out on a lot!
Anyways, for you all who do not know what Resurrection Sunday is or why I celebrate it, let me give you a little background. Resurrection Sunday is the Sunday where Jesus Christ the son of God rose up on the third day from death to restore and give us eternal salvation/life. See God sent his one and only son to come down in human form on earth and to live just as we are now or our ancestors did, in order to save and redeem us from sin (which is the bad things we do, that separate us from God). Now, however in order for Jesus to do this he had to be crucified on a cross.
Now, this crucifixion didn’t come easily Jesus was beaten until he was unrecognizable blood dripping everywhere from his body, he had a crown of thorns placed on his head which pierced through his scalp furthering the bleeding. Also he was nailed to a cross through his feet and hands, and pierced in the side. HE DID ALL THIS FOR US!!! I say that because its true, Jesus and God loved us so much that he sacrificed his son for us!! Like do yall not understand a type of love like that?? It’s unexplainable you can’t even fathom or totally understand it.
Jesus did all this for us, so that we were no longer chained to sin and all the shame or guilt it came with. Every sin we could possibly commit or do Jesus paid it all for us that Friday and rose from the grave that Sunday. Now, I’m not trying to preach to you or get you to switch religions I just want you all to understand the magnitude of the God I serve and how unfailing and unconditional his love is towards me and you! Like I want yall to realized Jesus didn’t just die for the people who believed in him, he died for the ones who even knew would never believe in him. Like that’s some type of love!!! To still die for someone you knew would possibly or never believe in you or believe that you were real or did any of this for them, THAT’S SOME TYPE OF LOVE. Because, if I’m being honest I would’ve never done that for no one, especially if I knew they weren’t going to believe in me.
But see Jesus isn’t like that He loves us so much that he was still willing to lay down his life for the people who said maybe I believe or maybe I won’t. So, if you have some time I just want you to reflect or even try to understand a love so deep and wide that nothing could penetrate or separate us from it. Why? Because Jesus paid the price for us all, our debts (sins) are paid in full through the blood of Jesus!!
So, thank you Jesus from rising on the third day!! Thank you for not letting me serve a dead God but a LIVING ONE. In the words of Travis Greene, “Jesus got up so I could get up again!!”
