Easter[nb 1] (Old English usually Ēastrun, -on, or -an; also Ēastru, -o; and Ēostre), also called Pasch (derived, through Latin: Pascha and Greek Πάσχα Paskha, from Aramaic: פסחא, cognate to Hebrew: פֶּסַח Pesaḥ)[nb 2] or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by Romans at Calvary c. 30 AD.
Easter changed everything.
The significance of this day is very personal for me. It means that Christ stood firm on what He promised. It validates Christianity and the words Christ spoke.
Today represents my broken, messed up life being covered by immense grace.
It means I’m no longer held to a standard of perfection, but that of obedience.
It means that yes I’m going to get it wrong, but perfect love has made me right.
You might not be a “religious” person, but if I’m honest about it, I’m not either. It’s about a relationship, a relationship with a Savior who out of every religion in the entire world, promised He would rise from the dead. Today He did.
Happy Easter — Don’t forget the significance of this day.
