“Through Him you believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and glorified Him, and so your faith and hope are in God.”
-1 Peter 1:21
On this and every Easter, we rejoice with thanks for the renewal and hope given by God through the Risen Christ. Thus, we’re called to live a reflection of Jesus’ life: to be prayerful in gratitude, to lift others up in love, practice genuine faith, and determine God’s will as our own. Living as Christians means that we believe that God sent His only Son to be sacrificed for us and raised from the dead to free us of our bond in sin and to provide us eternal life with Him.
It is through Jesus Christ that God’s covenants have been proven to all believers.
Whether you’re walking through a time of celebration or trial, know that God’s promises are for you. Christ died for you and was born again for you. Even if you were the only person saved, God would have sent His Son for you. He loves you and desires good things for you, in heaven and on earth. When you practice your faith, you declare God’s promises through His Son’s journey on the cross. You confirm Christ’s life was meant so that you would walk with Him in hope, love, and joy.
May the hope, love, and joy of the Easter promise be yours today, and forever.
