“. . . . that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures . . .1 Corinthians 15:3&4 

He is risen!!! This is the Easter message according to Paul as he writes to the church in Corinth. Easter is the reminder for all that Christ died and was buried and raised from the dead! The gospel in a nutshell.
First of all, it makes us thankful for the salvation that Jesus delivered to all of us who believe in His name and have asked Him to be Lord and Savior of our lives. Secondly, we remember that we have received forgiveness of the sin in our life because of His sacrifice on the cross. And thirdly, it reminds us of our place in God’s family that was purchased with the blood Jesus shed on the cross.
The gospel is all connected to the resurrection! Without the risen Lord we have nothing. I hope and pray that this year you will use the knowledge that you have about Jesus and His resurrection to educate any and all in your life about what Jesus means to you and what He can do for them. All because He is risen!!!
Because He is risen! 


“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”


II Chronicles 7:14
