The Meaning of Easter

29 Mar

Ask people, “What does it mean to be saved?” and in most cases you will hear an answer like this: “Jesus died for my sins, so there will be a place for me in heaven.” Ask, “What is the significance of Christ’s death on the cross?” People will quickly answer, “He died for the forgiveness of my sins.” Ask, “What is the significance of Christ’s resurrection?” and in my experience you will usually get a dead silence… What is the most obvious implication of the word resurrection? The restoration of LIFE!
