Why is Jesus’ Resurrection Such a Big Deal?

Design: Blessed Ong

 

Jesus Christ is alive on that first Resurrection Sunday and for all time hence!

There are at least five reasons why the resurrection is essential to all who believe in Christ as their Saviour and God (also see References below for more related information). These are primarily based on the Bible passage of 1 Corinthians 15:12-19.

Blessed Good Friday!

Blessed Good Friday!

Good Friday is good because Jesus Christ died so that all who trust and believe in Him will have eternal life, and we no longer live for ourselves but for Him who died and was raised. Put your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour today – find out more here or here.

For all who already trust Jesus, may this Good Friday be a day to reflect on our Saviour’s indescribable love for us that led him Via Dolorosa to Calvary, where He died that death we should have died. May we then live the life He wants and wills us to live, with faith, hope and joy abiding in Him.  Because He lives, we can face tomorrow.

Blessed Good Friday to all, from all of us at EAST!
