Easter Best For Less

Happy Easter weekend! I hope this weekend is full of chocolate bunnies, deviled eggs, pretty new dresses, polka bow ties and family fun. Easter is a holiday like no other where it's a celebration of such a significant event that has changed all of our lives more than any other event in history. Christ died to make us free from sin. Free. I was reading Matthew 27 last night on the eve of Good Friday and one verse stuck out to me like it never had before, I read "they were raised to life", not raised from the dead - raised to life. This is what Christ wanted for all of us when he made that sacrifice - to be raised from our sins and to live our whole life for him. We aren't perfect but he gave us grace, which is way better than chocolate bunnies. I wish each of you a very Happy Easter and hope that this weekend is full of joy and memories!

The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and[e] went into the holy city and appeared to many people.
