He’s alive

The cruel Roman cross was no match for Jesus. The spotless lamb of God, who defied death and dying, paved the way for man to enter eternity through selflessly enduring the sin-ridden stains of humanity. The world lends a nod to the Easter holiday; however, for true believers, the day is celebrated every day in our hearts.

Naysayers may scoff at the devotion we hold and may mock or deride our faith, but through His shed blood, we are now washed in new life and freedom. If not, we would still be knee-deep in our sins and still standing in judgement, same as the world. We are reborn and no longer bound by sin and the fear of death; we walk away new people in Christ and our new lives are more precious than anything this world can offer.

2 Corinthians 5:17-21 – “Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

For now, as people washed spiritually clean, we are ambassadors for Christ and proclaim Him until we are safely home with the Lord. We can choose to follow his precepts and serve Him or live to serve ourselves. Only we can make that choice. Though, because he gave his life for us, the very least we can do is live for Him.
