He Is Risen!!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,” – 1 Peter 1:3
He is risen!!
Did you just check your calendar? Are you thinking,
“Hold on a second! It’s not Easter!”
Of course, you’re right. It’s not Easter, today. It’s not even the same month. Yet, today we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Today we celebrate the victory of Jesus over death and hell. Today, we celebrate a celebration that will never end.
We celebrate Easter every day!
Christ’s resurrection is just as important today as Easter and every other day. So, yes! Celebrate Jesus being raised from the day, today, too. In fact, did you know it’s because Jesus rose on a Sunday that we gather for worship on Sundays instead of Saturdays?
It’s a reminder and celebration every week.
Why wouldn’t we celebrate every day? We didn’t deserve our salvation. Quite the opposite, we deserved eternal punishment for our sins, but our God is merciful and gracious, not willing that anyone should perish. According to that great mercy, we now, by faith in Jesus, may be born again…given new life.
Jesus is our hope and our hope is living. He was raised from the dead so we, too, can be raised to eternal life. So, let us celebrate today and every day after, blessing the God who loved us so much and has given us new life in the risen savior.
He is risen!!
He is risen, indeed!!
Thank You for dying and rising again for my and all people’s salvation. May I celebrate Your victory over sin, death, the devil, and hell every day of my life.
In Christ’s Service,
