A Call For Celebration Happy Easter
Have you ever thought it was all over for you? Maybe you were sitting in a principal’s office, or waiting for a doctor to give you test results, or just listened to a voice mail from an IRS agent asking for a convenient time to meet. But then, the principal gives you an award and a week off from school, the doctor tells you it was just a smudge on the x-ray, and the IRS says “Oops! My bad. You are actually getting a significantly larger refund.”
You want to CELEBRATE! Who wouldn’t? That’s just the kind of celebrating Easter is all about. Because of Christ’s resurrection, we can truly live and breathe without a care in the world.
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— Ephesians 2:4-8
