An Answer for Death [A Special Easter Message]
I am the living one. I died, but look–I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave. Revelation 1:18 NLT
From the dawn of man’s existence, he has been embattled against his own mortality and has lost every time. The point is simply this; man doesn’t have an answer for death.
Easter is a reminder that, death, in all its certitude and power, is no match for Jesus. He conquered death through his resurrection.
Death will be experienced by all—but overcome by those who have placed their faith in My Son, Jesus. Promises don’t get any bigger than this . . . eternal life after death.
Do you want to know how to have this eternal life through Jesus? There are 2 simple steps as outlined in My Word:
“If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” Romans 10:9-10 (NIV)
1. Declare it with your mouth and,
2. Believe it in your heart.
This is not just religion, this is relationship. A relationship that will last beyond death, when the promise for eternal life will be fulfilled. Have you embraced the promise of eternal life through faith? This Easter day is the perfect occasion to begin a relationship with me.
