Do you celebrate Easter? How? What does it mean to you? Is it about Easter eggs and bunnies?

Do you send Easter cards, buy Easter eggs, roll Easter eggs, have a holiday; all of these things or none of them?

My calendar tells me that it is a holiday and indeed it is a 'holy day'. Easter is the day we, as Christians   celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the grave. He had been crucified, died and was buried in a tomb but on the third day he rose again. He is alive! He defeated the power of death and because of this, all who believe in Him can have eternal life with Him. It's easy; all you have to do is believe that He died and rose again, ask him to forgive you for all the things you've done in your life that didn't honour Him and ask Him to come into your life and take control. He will you know and that will be the beginning of a 'new life' with Him.

You may be wondering why He had to die. This was because the bible tells us that 'all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God' (Romans 3:23) and it also says that 'the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord' (Romans 6:23).

Put simply: our Holy God could not abide sin and as we are all sinners we are unable to approach Him but He gave us a way of reaching Him through Jesus. This is often shown in the form of a diagram below:

We see that God and Man are separated by a chasm of sin but Jesus bridged that chasm on the cross. When He died on that cross, He paid the penalty for our sin. He died in our place so that we could be made pure and be able to draw close to God who forgives our sin when we ask him to.

For more information about Christ's death and resurrection why not try the RBC website or go along to your local evangelical church. If you live close enough, why not come along to ours; Dumfries Baptist Church. We'd love to meet you.
