Why Is Easter Important?

We are now just a few weeks away from Easter. Our community here in Stanley meets together every Wednesday leading up to Easter to prepare our hearts and ourselves for this most important time. The attendance has been good, the hosting churches have all been gracious, and the Lord has been most faithful. So the question: Why is Easter important?

The answer is simple. Easter is so important because all of Christianity revolves around the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. If Jesus did not die for our sins, or if Jesus did not rise again after three days, then the entire hope of Christianity is based upon nothing but lies and falsehoods. In short, Christianity would be meaningless as a religion, because our sins would not be forgiven by Christ. If it wasn’t for Easter we would have to continue living as the Jews of old and offering animal sacrifices to the Lord for our sins.

Easter is at the center of our faith. It is just as important for us today as it was 2000 years ago in the early church. It is just as important because it represents the truth that Jesus saved us from our sins by dying and rising again after three days. Remember His birth, Remember His Cross, and especially Remember His Empty Tomb! God bless you as you prepare for Easter.

Blessings, Pastor.
