Because Jesus Lives

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

Easter is over for one more year.

We’ve sung “He Lives” and rejoiced.

We’ve wept at the thought of spikes piercing Christ’s flesh when it should have been our hands and feet that were pierced.

Our hearts broke at the thought of God turning his back on his son because Jesus carried our sins upon his perfect sinless self.

We contemplated what it meant that Jesus paid the debt we owed, but could never pay.

Jesus came to earth, lived as a human, felt everything we feel, was tempted in every way we are tempted, yet never sinned. He offered his perfect sinless self as a sacrifice for our sins so that everyone who believes in him would have eternal life with him in heaven.

Because Jesus conquered death and rose to life, we can too.

He broke death’s chains that bind us. He broke sins shackles that enslave us. He broke Satan’s hold over us.

Because he lives we can overcome the trials of this life through his power in us.

Jesus is the resurrection and the life. No one can come to God except through faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior. He is the conqueror who reigns forever and will return.

We need not fear, for in Christ, we are more than conquerors.

Easter is over for one more year.

Will it make any difference in how we live our lives today?

Jesus told her, “I am the one who raises the dead and gives them life again. Anyone who believes in me, even though he dies like anyone else, shall live again. He is given eternal life for believing in me and shall never perish. Do you believe this, Martha?” John 11:25-26 (TLB)

I wish you well.
