Though the journey leading up to Easter Sunday was long, arduous, and full of uncertainty, the payoff was certainly worth it. After so much pain and suffering, after death and disappointment, here God proves Himself victorious once and for all with Jesus’ resurrection from the grave.
What was once the end of the story for all of us is now only the beginning for those who believe in and follow Jesus. Death has been defeated, and we can walk forward in this life with a hope that spans eternity. Now if that’s not something to celebrate, what is?
As the Easter week closes, don’t miss what this final day of celebration means for your life. Because Jesus died and rose again, you can have eternal life with God. You can walk freely in the world knowing that this world isn’t all there is for you. You can live in the full assurance that God is who He says He is and He’ll do what He says He will do in your life. That’s what Easter means for your life and the lives of anyone who believes in Him.
The Easter story may end here, but it doesn’t have to end in your heart. Pray that God would let you carry with you this sense of awe, wonder, and celebration over what He’s done through Jesus.
