Today is the celebration that Jesus defeated death forever for those who believe in Him.

Up from the grave He arose!
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes
He rose a victor from the dark domain
And He lives forever with His saints to reign.

He arose!
He arose!
Hallelujah Christ arose!

1 Corinthians 15:50–58 (ESV) (50) I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. (51) Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, (52) in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. (53) For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. (54) When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” (55) “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” (56) The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. (57) But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (58) Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

Today is the celebration that Jesus defeated death forever for those who believe in Him.  Today, we celebrate, not because we get chocolate and candy, but because Jesus’ tomb is empty.  Today, we celebrate that because of Jesus, those who believe will never face the wrath of God.

Today, we celebrate the promise of eternal life, because Jesus is alive forevermore!

Today, we celebrate Jesus.

John 14:6 (ESV) (6) Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

What are you celebrating today?

Have an AWESOME resurrection day, and glorify Christ in your coming and going, in your work and play, in your eating, in your family!

John 11:25–26 (ESV) (25) Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, (26) and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
