Christ sacrificed his life to free you from your sins, but his resurrection granted you access to heaven.
What an amazing God you serve!
As most Christians know, Jesus was murdered upon the cross and shed his blood as payment for your sins.
We covered this in: Was It Necessary For Jesus To Die and Rise Again?
In his death, you were as well crucified and find peace in knowing that his death granted you freedom.
But when Jesus resurrected from the dead, three days later, he opened the gates of heaven for you as he proved that he was God.
In his death, you were given a chance of a new life
In his resurrection, you were given the keys to your eternal home, heaven.
As Easter nears, most Christians tend to celebrate Jesus’ death.
But Easter is the celebration of life.
The celebration of Christ’s resurrection and the celebration of eternal peace for you and everyone who repents their sins.
As Jesus granted you life in his death, you can be united in it.
But also you can be united with Christ in knowing that he rose again to give you access to an eternal, peaceful life once you live this world.
