Easter is just around the corner. It is such a wonderful time of the year!
Spring is coming, grass is greening, flowers are blooming, baby chicks and bunnies are everywhere – especially at the stores. 🙂
All these are a reminder of the greatest event that ever happened. The atonement of Jesus Christ – His suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross at Calvary, His death, and His subsequent resurrection – affects every person.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:16-17.
Jesus Christ has given everyone, everywhere, the free gift of resurrection, thus doing away with the sting of death.
“But there is a resurrection, therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ.” Mosiah 16:8.
That is the glory of Easter and spring – coming back from death. And even better, through repentance we can be forgiven for our sins because Jesus Christ paid the price for them. He has provided a way for us to return to live forever with God, our Eternal Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ!
