The greatest event in history
It is the greatest event in history. Nothing else really is even close or could compare. What does it mean to you? The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the single greatest event in history. It has changed the world as we know it forevermore and for all eternity. It alone is the greatest hope in all the world. No longer is there separation from God by our sinful nature. Rather, there is the ultimate substitution in Jesus ( the new covenant ) for our sins. He conquers our sin whether past, present or future. He calls out from the cross "Tetelestai!" Which means it is finished. He has covered our sin for all time. It is paid for. God says I made a covenant with you and you became mine. Our relationship with God is made complete by the Resurrection. The only question that remains is what will we do with this outstanding gift that once again our God has provided. The answer lies within your heart. The apostle Thomas had a difficult time believing that Jesus rose from the dead. It is where we get the expression "doubting" Thomas. When he sees Jesus he says, "My Lord and my God." Jesus answers by saying Thomas you believe because you see. Blessed are those who don't see yet still believe. Do you believe? It is the true essence of faith. For us to rise He needed to rise and rise He did. God is so close to all of us. He is in our life every single day. We must invite Him in and TRY to be the person He wants us to be. Surely we will all fall short of the glory of God. Yet, His love for us is enormous. It is agape. Easter is a new beginning for all of us sinners. What does it mean to you?
