For us embracing the Christian faith, “Easter” is the highlight celebration of the calendar year. It encompasses all the glorious truth of why God came to earth as the man “Jesus”. He suffered so that He could truly be able to identify with us lowly sinful humans. He is our deliverance from sin and it’s effects.
His blood paid in full the ransom price and set all the hostages to Satan free. Jesus says:-
“As you forgive others you participate with me in loosing of chains which bind you. Freely you have received, freely give”.
The climax of His short life on earth was His resurrection.
Jesus is RISEN. He has come alive even though He was put to a cruel death.
Jesus says – “Let my life energize you, let my overcoming victory be yours over every force of evil in you and in your circumstances. Ask what I would do and then let my Holy Spirit flow through you to bring life to many”
“If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above where Christ is seated on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on earth. For you are dead and your life is hid with Christ in God.”
I love the chorus:-
Let the weak say I am strong,
Let the poor say I am rich,
Let the blind say I can see,
It’s what the Lord has done for me.
Hosanna, Hosanna to the Lamb who was slain.
Hosanna, Hosanna, Jesus died and rose again.
That is our VICTORY.
