(Elder Florence M. Johnson)
Jesus Lives And So Will We!
On April 9th, many people will celebrate the Easter holiday with candy, treats and tales of the fictional Easter bunny. We who believe in God have an actual, amazing reason to celebrate: the resurrection of Jesus Christ! We celebrate that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, was buried and, on the 3rd day God raised Jesus from the dead - and just as God raised Jesus back to life, He will raise us too!
In 1 Corinthians chapter 15 we are urged to remember that all of God’s Word, including the resurrection of Jesus Christ, is real. One day all of us will die, but if we believe in God, He will raise us up to have everlasting life. We can rest assured that when we believe in God and His son Jesus, we will be resurrected, too.
Let’s all start a new tradition by teaching our children what Resurrection Sunday is all about. We will give them a gift that lasts long after dyed eggs and candies are gone. Help them to know that God is real. To believe in Him and in His Son, Jesus Christ. When we do, we will live forever. Jesus lives and so will we!
Resurrection Study Suggestions:
You can read about the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ in Matthew chapters 27-28, Mark chapters 15-16, Luke chapters 23-24, and John chapters 19-20. Try using a New King James (NKJV) or other bible version with contemporary language so that the scriptures are easy to read.
Minute Meditations are reflections to help us live our lives with excellence.
