Celebrate Resurrection Day!

What is the most important day of the year for Christians? It is not the day that commemorates the birth of Jesus, commonly known as Christmas. It is not even Easter, as Easter originated with the pagan celebration of the false god Ishtar. If you guessed Passover, you are getting closer. Even though we as Christians gather together on Easter we are not celebrating Easter, but rather the resurrection of Jesus from the grave. The first few verses of the sixth chapter of the book of Romans tell us some incredible news that is certainly worth celebrating not only on Easter, but all year long. Romans 6 tells us that Jesus’ death on the cross and the shedding of His blood paid our sin debt in full, but that is not the best news. His resurrection from the dead made it possible for us to have eternal, spiritual life. This eternal, spiritual life is His life, Christ’s life, living in us. Romans 6:9 says, “We know that since Christ has been raised from the dead, he is never going to die again; death no longer has mastery over him. 10 For the death he died, he died to sin once for all, but the life he lives, he lives to God. 11 So you too consider yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” Without the resurrection of Jesus, eternal life for humans would be impossible. If you have the life of Christ living in and through you, praise Him today and every day!
