As we approach Easter, let us – even amidst this COVID-19 pandemic – remember what God has done about 2000 years ago:
God, the creator of the universe, the one who has made you and me, has seen us in our state of misery and sin, our futile attempts to live a life good enough to escape death and hell.
Out of love and compassion, He sent his only son Jesus Christ to open the door to heaven, to an eternal life without tears, pain and death.
He came and did what no other human would be able to: He lived up to the standards of God’s holiness in every aspect. The most holy person to have ever lived was then mocked, beaten and crucified like a criminal all for our sake. He took the penalty of our sins – eternal separation from God – on himself and died on the cross.
To many, this looked like defeat, but this was just the beginning:
Because of Jesus’ perfect life and his perfect sacrifice, death could no longer hold him. Jesus rose from the dead and defeated Satan and death itself! He made it possible to have eternal life through his great victory.
You can have eternal life as well! Believe in Jesus and that this work has been done also for you, repent of your futile attempts to save yourself and instead receive him as your Savior and Lord over your life today and you will receive forgiveness of sins, a new life and eternity with the God who loves you so dearly!
Let us remember and celebrate what Jesus has done for us with a grateful heart and a new decision to surrender ourselves fully to his authority and follow him in self-denial and in carrying our cross daily.
May God bless you and keep you safe,
