Why Do You Celebrate Easter?
Many people around the world will be celebrating Easter, but do you know why? Many claim that the word “Easter” is derived from paganism, but this is derived from the German word “auferstehung” which formed the word “Ostern” which means Resurrection
The word Easter literally means Resurrection, so we celebrate Easter to Celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
The Good News (Gospel) of Easter is that Jesus paid the penalty for our sins so we may inherit eternal life. On Easter Sunday morning, Jesus defeated sin and death so we can be reconciled with God as his children
He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’ ” Luke 24:6-7
When his disciples went to check the tomb on the Sunday morning, they found that the Lord Jesus has Risen! Because of Christ , we can overcome anything including death. You might say what do I need to do to become saved?
Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38
Repent (turn away from your sin) ask Jesus for forgiveness with Godly sorrow (2 Corinthians 7:10), believe that he is your Lord and died for your sins and you will be saved and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit!
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
Jesus wants a relationship with you! Pray often, study your Bible, fellowship with other Christians ,and let the Holy Spirit be your teacher
