Today although we celebrate the Easter Bunny and hunt for baskets and eggs, let’s not forget the true meaning of the day.
Easter is the day when we celebrate Jesus Christ rising from the dead. Jesus is the Son of God and heroically gave His life to die for our sins. On the third day after He died — the day we now celebrate as Easter Sunday — His friends went to His grave, and found that He had risen from the dead. They saw an angel who told them, “Don’t be afraid! I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn’t here! He has been raised from the dead, just as He said it would happen.”
I won’t go too much further as I don’t want to preach to you but there are a few simple things you can do that will bring God into your life and allow you to be saved by Him. He offers you the chance for your sins to be forgiven and the gift of eternal life. Here are the four principals that tell you how you can receive the gift of God in your life.
1. God Loves You!
The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life”
The problem is that
2. All of us have done, said or thought things that are wrong. This is called sin, and our sins have separated us from God.
The Bible says â€œAll have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.â€ God is perfect and holy, and our sins separate us from God forever. The Bible says â€œThe wages of sin is death.â€
The good news is that, about 2,000 years ago,
3. God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.
Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. â€œGod demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.â€
Jesus rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His Father. He offers us the gift of eternal life — of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me.”
God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name.” You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.
4. If you want to accept Christ as Savior and turn from your sins, you can ask Him to be your Savior and Lord by praying a prayer like this:
“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins.Â Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life.Â I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always.”
Hope you have a great day, take care and as always, God Bless!
