The joy of Easter centres around the fact that death couldn’t hold Jesus down in the grave. Jesus, through His resurrection, had victory over the grave and death. It’s more important to us that this great victory was achieved for us.
More about the joy of Easter below
It’s Easter and we are happy about this.Thank God Jesus made it to the Cross. Thank God He rose from the dead. Thank God for the victory He achieved for us over sin, death and the devil.
Thank God Jesus is alive forevermore. Hallelujah! Thank God we can now cry haba Father because through the shedding of His blood on the Cross at Calvary, Jesus washed away our sins and removed permanently the age-old obstacle that has hindered our smooth relationship with God almighty.
The joy of Easter: Jesus rose and many witnessed the event
Paul wrote under inspiration and made us know that lots of people actually saw the resurrected Jesus. So this event is not a fairy take story that someone cooked up somewhere. Jesus rose and actually showed Himself to many witnesses.
Look at what Paul wrote below
1 Corinthians 15:1-8Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.
Did you see that? Over 500 people saw the resurrected Jesus. He died and rose from the dead. This sums up the joy of Easter that we have and celebrate today.
Another account and proof of Jesus’ resurrection
I want you to look at another account and proof of Jesus’resurrection which can be found from what brother Luke wrote in the scripture below:
Acts 1:1-3The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God. The Holy Spirit Promised
Jesus rose from the dead and showed Himself to His disciples and also showed them lots of infallible proofs.
Don’t let the devil steal the joy of Easter from you
The devil tries to steal the joy of Easter from people; don’t allow that! Don’t believe the fake and evil report flying around that Jesus did not resurrect.
Jesus is alive forevermore. Hallelujah!
I am wishing you a wonderful celebration. With love from us at the Visionary Business Project.
