Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave. A fact so important – the entire Christian faith hinges on it. But not everyone believes it and today we’re putting your questions about Easter to those who study Jesus full time. We’ll ask your questions about the need for evidence on the claims of Jesus. And we’ll push the limits on how far the forgiveness of Christ should go to grant second chances.
Question of the Week: Do you feel the need for a second chance in any area of your life? Talk to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I think the hardest thing to remember about Easter is that we actually are not okay the way we are. God’s perfect, and we’re not.
My relationships are affected by my mistakes. The world around me is affected by mistakes. God got tired of that. It’s a broken situation and into that dilemma God’s love created the perfect repair.
Jesus died for us, and that provides forgiveness for all the wrong doing in our lives past, present and future. It also gives us new life for here and for heaven. The Christian cross we raise at Easter says "thank you, I need that, I believe it, I receive it, I follow Jesus."
