Easter: a Time of Renewed Hope

 “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”-- 1 Corinthians 15:55 (KJV)

Why do we celebrate Easter? A hundred different people might give a variety of answers. There’s not just one reason to honor the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Here are two main ideas:

Evil doesn’t triumph in the end.

God represents light. Good wins the war. Jesus conquered the darkness (the grave) for us.
This theme is emphasized in the new song, “Risen”, by Shawna Edwards. Please click here to listen:

God’s love knows no bounds.

God cherished us enough to send his son as a sacrifice. The subject of God’s amazing love is written about at fathersloveletter.com.  
My Conclusion

This holiday is an important reminder God cares for each of us more than we can imagine. He sent His son as atonement for our sins. That’s the key to stopping the spread of darkness.

Do you feel the spiritual brightness of the season?
