    Easter period is the time we celebrate the coming of Christ to the world. We celebrate Jesus for coming, suffering, surrendering to take our inequities and setting us free. But if He had not surrendered to die for us, what will  be our hope? what will we live for? i just cant stop thinking of this. please share your views

      Welcome to hubpages Timobile smile There will be no hope if Christ had not surrendered for us. Jesus went to calvalry to die for our sins. That's not how it all ended. Three days later, he rose again big_smile There is no greater love than a man who would lay down his life for our sins. Christ came to save us. The spirit of the Lord is freedom. Praise God.

        yah, "went to calvary".. Hebrews 12:2   Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the JOY that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
        ..just the beginning
        Everything God does is a beginning

      "But if He had not surrendered to die for us, what will  be our hope?"

      Well! I always want someone else to suffer for my sins. I would definitely not like to suffer for my own sins nor would I like the idea of keeping myself away from  sins.

      So, I will look for some other messiah! Anyone else there??

      What does Jesus' execution have to with what you do with you life?

      Keep living in the past and you are useless to the present, and cannot be any use for the future.

      Too bad you have to live with thoughts in the past, which are completely irrelevant and meaningless to the future.

      Create your own purpose, find your own meaning and you will have hope for your own future. It will only be done through your own actions, regardless of what has happened in the past.

      This is so sad.  What would you live for?

      Were the New Testament non existent you would still be.  You might not feel that you were somehow worthless, and washed in sin.  You might not believe your only hope was the intervention of God to forgive your 'sins'.

      I have always wondered why so many Christian focus on that part of the story.  Sure, you believe you've attained salvation; but when you hinge a life philosophy on an afterlife you miss out on the more important things in this part of your existence. You miss out on living the message that was shared.

      Maybe if you stepped away from this portion of your scripture and focused on something else.

      Something I always remembered when I was a Christian.  'Judge not, lest ye be judged.' It works all the way around.  Not simply not judging others, but stop judging yourself unfairly. Reflect on your weaknesses, use the knowledge to become a better person, not beat yourself up. To place so much focus on sin is losing the focus on all the good in the world and in you.

    We would all still be happy pagans, skipping around and enjoying some spring rites that included too much wine, song and other stuff! Happy Spring to you all smile

    If there were no hope of eternal life people would have no reason to be civil towards one another. There would be no retribution for the missdeeds they have done in their lives, and they would not be held accountable for themselves. It would be hard to imagine all the wrong in the world to go unjustified.

    Nothing would have happened; as Jesus has no role to play in forgiving sins; he had no such authority from the Creator-God Allah YHWH.

      Yes he does.

      Matthew 28-18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
      19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
