Freely You gave it all for us
Surrendered Your life upon that cross
Great is Your love
Poured out for all
This is our God
-Hillsong THIS IS OUR GOD
The lyrics of this great song captured the essence of the father and son's sacrifice for us at Easter: freely he gave his life so that we can have a life, albeit a new life! This is the sacrifice at Easter, this is the greatest story ever told, and this is our God!
The sacrifice at calvary is the reason for out triumphant living!
This sacrifice and this great outpouring of God's love is the foundation for our victory and the foundation on which Christianity stands today. This sacrifice is the story we tell today, it is the reason for easter, this sacrifice is the very essence of our victorious living! Understanding what Christ did on a day like this is what position us to be blessed eternally by it.
The essence of a day like this is to give concentrated focused thoughts and all that transpires from calvary to when He rose from the grave. This is what the easter celebration should be all about: setting a period aside to renew our understanding of Christ finished work on our behalf. It is why I enjoined you that as you celebrate you take time out to read these great articles below on the death and resurrection of our lord Jesus Christ. They are captioned RESURRECTION TRUTHS and they will renewed your understanding on what transpires on our behalf over 2000 years ago!
HAPPY EASTER CELEBRATION TO YOU AND YOURS!
This is why Paul longed to know this resurrection power! It was the greatest display of God's power ever displayed in the history of mankind. It was described in Ephesians 1:17-22 as the 'exceeding greatness of his power which he wrought in Christ when he raised him from the dead....'! This mighty power is what brought us victory! And despite the fact that the tomb was sealed with a mighty stone, with soldiers to watch and all the devils and the demons of the world keeping guard, the power of resurrection blasted it way through and the grave could not hold the son of God down! He died and rose and gave us victory and indeed we have victory! Praise the Lord!

"So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption. It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit." - 1 Corinthians 15:42-45
Corruption gave way to incorruption. Shame gave way to glory. Weakness gave way to power! A natural body is down but a spiritual body is reaped! A living soul for a quickening spirit! This is the story of resurrection! It is the story of spiritual transactions where what ought not to be, gave way for what ought to be!
