Happy Easter Everyone!
Before I got to know Jesus, I didn’t know what Easter meant so I thought I’d share that with you.
So Good Friday was when Jesus was hung on the cross to take our sins upon Himself that man wouldn’t have to receive the punishment of sin through God’s judgement.
(Picture if your Dad was a Supreme Court Judge and you broke the law. Your own Father rigged the system to save you from punishment while still being a Just Judge.)
It’s a free gift that God gave us to declare His love for mankind. All you have to do is believe that Jesus did this for you and accept who He is and you can claim this ‘Get out if Jail’ free card.
He was in the grave for 3 days taking our punishment in Hell until God the Father rose Him up from the grave.
Today, represents Jesus rising from the grave that He foretold before His death.
This answered man’s hardest question:
Is there life after death?
Is there a God?
Who is this God?
Is there Heaven?
How do I get there?
This event was more powerful than every miracle Jesus ever did because it seals the deal that eternal life is real and everything He stated while alive was true.

New Living Translation
1Early on Sunday morning,a as the new day was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went out to visit the tomb.
2Suddenly there was a great earthquake! For an angel of the Lord came down from heaven, rolled aside the stone, and sat on it.3His face shone like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow. 4The guards shook with fear when they saw him, and they fell into a dead faint.
5Then the angel spoke to the women. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead, just as he said would happen. Come, see where his body was lying. 7And now, go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and he is going ahead of you to Galilee. You will see him there. Remember what I have told you.”
8The women ran quickly from the tomb. They were very frightened but also filled with great joy, and they rushed to give the disciples the angel’s message. 9And as they went, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they ran to him, grasped his feet, and worshiped him. 10Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid! Go tell my brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see me there.”
Thanks for joining me on today’s adventure! I look forward to seeing you on the next run! Keep hope alive! God Bless you and yours!
