Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and He said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day.
Happy Easter Weekend! The resurrection of Jesus changed everything. When He rose from the dead, He conquered death and offers us new life both now and for all eternity.
Some call Easter the Super Bowl Sunday of the Christian Church. There is no question it is the most important day in the church calendar. Without Easter, there simply is no Christianity.
The Empty Grave
Easter is all about the resurrection of Christ. The resurrection sets Christianity apart from all other religions. You can go the grave of any other religious leader, but when you go to tomb of Jesus, you will find it empty. He is not there, He is risen!
When Jesus stepped out of grave that first Easter morning, He defeated death and the grave. He proved He was more than a good teacher, He was the Son of God.
No Fear of Death
Because Jesus conquered death, the fear of death was destroyed forever. Death would no longer be the last chapter. The power of death has been destroyed.
Because Jesus overcame death, He can offer life to you and me. Because of the resurrection, you don’t have to fear death. Because Jesus rose from the dead, we know we will be raise to life and spend eternity with Him.
Take a few minutes this weekend to celebrate and thank God for the resurrection of Christ. Remember, that you don’t have to fear death. Celebrate that because of the resurrection; you have new life in Christ.
Look at that promise again.

Make these confessions.
After three days in the grave, Jesus rose from the dead.
Because Jesus overcame death, I do not fear the grave.
Because Jesus rose from the dead, He offers eternal life to me.
