With Easter approaching fast we think about what is the real meaning of Easter is....
Many people think that Easter is about Easter egg hunts, the Easter bunny, chocolate candy and toys, but for a Christian, that’s not what Easter is about at all. The true Easter story begins with the story of Christmas. The Christmas story tells how God sent Jesus to this earth as a baby who was born to Mary and Joseph. Jesus was not only a man but God in human form. As Jesus grew up, He never sinned, which means He never displeased God.
Jesus knew that all people do sin, though. We all sin when we do, say, and think wrong things that displease God. Because of our sin, we deserve to spend eternity without God. But, because God loves us, He sent His only Son Jesus to give us a way to spend eternity in heaven with Him. He didn’t deserve to die because death is the punishment for sin, and He had never sinned. But Jesus died on the cross to take the punishment we deserve for our sins. Because God accepted His death for sin, God brought Jesus back to life. If we believe and trust in Jesus to forgive us from our sins, we will go to heaven to be with Him when we die.
For Christians, Easter is the time when we remember what Jesus did for us—He died for our sins, came back to life and is now waiting for us in heaven!
We hope to see you at one of our Easter services, if you or anyone you know would like to receive home communion this Easter please contact us on the above number.
God Bless you all
