Glorify God this Easter

Easter is the most important time of the year for any Christian. Easter brings glory to God through the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

It is a time when all Australians pause from their busy schedules, and some will ask why do we have this break?

When this question comes up, take the opportunity to share the significance of Easter. Remember, it only comes once a year.

Explain to them that Easter means that God’s perfect plan of salvation has been provided.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”

Romans 5:8But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

And that God was satisfied with the work of His Son.

1 Peter 3:18For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:”

Remember to point out that, to the believer, Easter brings the promise of everlasting life.

John 14:19b “…because I live, ye shall live also.”

John 5:24Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”

And then challenge them to believe the claims of Jesus Christ.

John 11:25Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:”

Romans 10:9That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
