Heavenly Father, I come to You in the Name of Your risen, living Son Jesus to give You praise and thanksgiving for this Easter celebration and for the atoning death on the cross of Your spotless Son. In addition to taking my spot on the cross, You accepted the fate that should really have been mine, and bore the punishment of death for my sin, permitting me to be set no cost. Philippians two:eight “And getting identified in look as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.”
How amazing it is that the Easter story does not finish with Jesus’ death. It also shows the resurrection energy of God. Mathew 28:five-6a “But the angel answered and stated to the ladies, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not right here for He is risen.‘”
Thank you for giving a way to overcome the energy of sin. Just by my accepting and believing in Jesus as Savior, You have offered me the righteousness of God by means of the saving operate of Your Son. two Corinthians five:21 “For He created Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we may possibly turn into the righteousness of God in Him.”
Direct me to comprehend and appreciate the accurate which means of all that occurred as we celebrate this unique day of Easter. It is no tiny factor that Jesus traded the immeasurable worth of His righteousness for some thing as worthless as man’s sin.
In Jesus’ Name, I thank You for all the blessings this Easter season brings to thoughts, Amen.
