Not a wooden cross

Not a wooden cross, but the Man who chose the cross.

This is the reason for Easter.

Not the empty tomb, but the Man who walked out of the tomb.

This is the reason for Easter.

Not a memorial, but a surprise return.

This is the reason for Easter.

Not object or place, but the God who walked among us, died by our hands, and got His own heart beating, His own lungs breathing three days later . . and still wanted to save us.

This is the reason for Easter.

Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life.He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. (2 Corinthians 5:14b-15, NLT)
