This Easter we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ – Jesus defeated death so we don’t have to fear it.

Acts 1 v 3

After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.

The Bible says that Jesus made a number of appearances after His death. These appearances convinced His disciples, beyond any doubt, that He had risen from the dead. The resurrection changed everything!

The reason Christianity spread is because “it’s really good news,” It’s not bad news. It’s really good news – no, it’s great news.

Do you know where the word ‘gospel’ came from? People talk about sharing the gospel. That’s just the old English word that means ‘good news.’

The grave could not hold him and He has won a great victory over death. Because He lives I can face tomorrow. He lives within your heart and His promise to you is everlasting life, that starts today as you serve Him.

Have a great day!
