me take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Easter, a really Happy
Easter. That is why God the Father sent His Son, Jesus, so you and I
can have a Happy Easter and a happy hereafter. You can almost feel the
incredible love of God.
Imagine God. But of
course, you and I can’t imagine God. We understand human things and
must live within limitations. We continue to study physics, astronomy,
history, chemistry and biology, in order to better understand our world –
the world that God created just because He loved us. Some would
presume to understand God – they would equate themselves with God, but
if there is a God, how can a frail human being, no matter how smart,
understand God? By definition, God is above all and beyond all our
What we know about God is
only what He chooses for us to know. What He has revealed about Himself
in the Bible is everything He wants us to know while we are still on
this earth. “Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we
shall see face to face.” – 1 Corinthians 13:12a.
Yet, when you
believe, you do feel the incredible love of God – A love so great that
He sent His perfect and only Son to this sin cursed world to save us
from our sins.
Sins? What sins? So you think you are perfect?
When we take a good look at our thoughts, our words, and our deeds, who
can say, “I’m without sin”? I’m a sinner, and I haven’t met a perfect
man or woman, but the Bible tells us that Jesus was without sin – “He
committed no sin, and no deceit was found in His mouth.” – 1 Peter 2:22.
I can’t imagine that. Can you? Perfect in every way, that was Jesus. Imperfect in every way, that’s you and me.
love the Father had that He sent His own Son to live a perfect life,
give His life on the cross for our sins and then, the really great part,
to show His power, even over death, by rising back to life in total
triumph over the grave. Victory – that’s what Easter is all about. It
was a victory that Jesus claimed for Himself and He claimed it for you
That’s the thrill of Easter. That’s why all the other
days of the existence of the earth would be totally and utterly
meaningless without Easter. So have a Happy Easter, a really Happy
Easter – make it more than just intellectual knowledge – acknowledge
your shortcomings, your imperfection, yes, your sins, and ask for God’s
forgiveness. Pray for faith in Jesus who is happiness personified.
said, “I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father
except through Me.” – John 14:6. And in John 6:47, “I tell you the
truth, he who believes has everlasting life.”
This is the real
meaning of Easter. Jesus is the real path to happiness. He is the path
to real freedom – “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set
you free.” – John 8:32.
Have a wonderful, joyous Easter Celebration!
