The sun has risen today as its habit has been for nearly countless days in centuries past. No one who doesn’t love the sunrise lets these beginnings slip by into a bulging collected past. Nevertheless, once a year we climax holy week with the recognition of one very special day from yesteryear.

Resurrection Sunday is the most sensational day of the year.

On this heart-catching, smile-motivating, joy-celebratory day of the year, the world commemorates the miracle of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. This not a life restored only to die again; but, this was the first life to die and then to be raised never to die again. Astounding!

It is a first-fruits of the Resurrection promised to all people who follow Jesus as their Savior. He forgives them of their sin because he paid the price of their sin. The cost was eternal death.

But, he did not remain in the grave. Instead, God the Father raised him from the dead on Sunday nearly 2000 years ago. That one miracle gave all people the opportunity to put their faith in him and received the gift of eternal life. Marvelous!

Our world tries to offer alternatives to faith in the Resurrected Jesus Christ. Don’t listen to those odd options. Jesus is the real deal and his offer is as genuine as he is really the Son of God.

Put your faith in him and you will be saved.

Make this Easter the reason for your transformed life. Jesus gave us a wonderful gift of new life and forgiveness that will transform your life. It will be a life that will have an amazing future, including an inheritance that will never perish, spoil, or fade.

If you have never put your trust in Jesus the risen Lord, do so today. I invite you to accept this amazing gift, purchased at great cost, done for you because God loves you, and guaranteed by all that God is.

He is Risen! He is Risen indeed!
