Happy Resurrection Sunday! Jesus did it all for you. He came from heaven to earth to show us the way to the father from the earth to the cross he paid our debt. He tore down the wall of partition that separated us from the father. He made it possible for us to fellowship with God again. He paid the price. He redeemed us.
This is what we are celebrating today. It’s not the Easter basket, it’s not the Easter bunny, It’s not the Easter ham, or the feast that you share with your family today. It is the fact that Jesus paid the price so that we could be with our heavenly father again.
Jesus is our redeemer.
