I am the resurrection and the life. He that believeth in me though he were dead yet shall he live. John 11:25
Since 1900 the average life expectancy in the United States has risen by more than 25 years. But despite our phenomenal medical breakthroughs, death is still our greatest enemy, the inescapable last fact of life.
But there is hope. The good news of Easter is that there is life after death! Jesus Christ overcame death nearly 2,000 years ago as the Bible states: "Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures... was buried... was raised on the third day" (1 Corinthians 15:3).
Christ's resurrection is more than an historical fact or theological doctrine. It is God's personal invitation of eternal life to you and me.
On the Cross of Calvary Jesus Christ suffered and died in our place so that we would not have to face God's judgment. And on that first Easter morning He was raised to new life--God's seal of approval that Christ has paid for our sins in full.
This Easter Jesus Christ offers you salvation and new life. Through faith in Him you can join the countless thousands who have believed His promise: "God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life" (1 John 5:11-12).
Have you received the promise of Easter? God offers you new life paid for in full by Christ's blood. Admit to God that you need His forgiveness and salvation. Today you can believe in Christ and receive His salvation.
"If you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9).
