Easter is the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. It is the recognition that although Jesus died on the cross for our sin and was put into the grave, He didn’t stay there. The Bible tells us that on the third day He rose again and that His resurrection was verified by many witnesses. In rising again, Jesus demonstrated His authority over everything in this world, including the one thing that none of us can overcome – death.
On Easter, Jesus showed that He is stronger than death and the grave. The Apostle Paul wrote that this is our hope. That if Jesus rose again it offers us the promise of new and eternal life.
Jesus’ resurrection also offers us the hope that because He overcame death, He is also stronger than anything we will face in our lives.
Today we celebrate the fact that Jesus is stronger.
