The Message of Easter

empty tomb - resurrection-wide
The message of Easter is LOVE—not eggs, not candy. “What?” you ask. “Everyone knows that LOVE is Valentine’s Day. It has nothing to do with Easter.” Wrong. You’ve missed the real meaning.

The real message of Easter is LOVE—God’s love given to us through His Son Jesus. God SO LOVED that He GAVE. (1 John 4:10 – “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”) And His giving includes our redemption and restoration of eternal fellowship with Him. Through the sacrifice of Jesus at the Cross and through His resurrection, God sealed forever His love for mankind, allowing anyone to receive His gift of love. God’s gift was not complete until Resurrection morning.

So, when you celebrate Easter today, celebrate God’s LOVE for YOU.
