E = Easter

Easter is so close. Some people think that Christmas is the most important Holiday for Christians, yet Easter is the reason that we have Christmas in the first place. Christ came to this earth for the purpose of sacrificing himself for us. The Resurrection is what it is all about.

How beautiful the heart that bled
that took all my sin
and bore it instead.

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, -Romans 3:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Romans 6:32

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. -Romans 5:8

for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. -Romans 10:13

How many people do not realize how simple it is?

How beautiful the tender eyes
that chose to forgive
and never despise.

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. -Romans 8:1-2

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. -John 3:17

How beautiful the radiant Bride
who waits for her Groom
with His light in her eyes.

To my readers who are believers, I would be happy to read scripture that you feel goes with the last stanza that I posted above, so please comment to share some.

To my readers who are not believers, I hope that you will take the time to consider to message and the importance of Easter, and, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

  1. ...How beautiful when humble hearts give
    the fruit of pure lives so that others may live.

    Revelation 21:2 (King James Version)

    "And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."

    The message of Easter is simple. He died that I might live. His perfect life He ransomed for my imperfect one...What love!! What a deep deep price to pay!! Yet, He did, and not for me only, but also for you.

    "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6 KJV

  2. Song of Solomon 4:9 NLT
    You have captured my heart,my treasure, my bride.You hold it hostage with one glance of your eyes,with a single jewel of your necklace.

    Isaiah 62:4 NLT
    Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City” or “The Desolate Land.” Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight” and “The Bride of God,” for the Lord delights in youand will claim you as his bride.

    Matthew 25 NLT
    Parable of the Ten Bridesmaids
    “Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaids[a] who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 The five who were foolish didn’t take enough olive oil for their lamps, 4 but the other five were wise enough to take along extra oil. 5 When the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep.
    6 “At midnight they were roused by the shout, ‘Look, the bridegroom is coming! Come out and meet him!’

    7 “All the bridesmaids got up and prepared their lamps. 8 Then the five foolish ones asked the others, ‘Please give us some of your oil because our lamps are going out.’

    9 “But the others replied, ‘We don’t have enough for all of us. Go to a shop and buy some for yourselves.’

    10 “But while they were gone to buy oil, the bridegroom came. Then those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked. 11 Later, when the other five bridesmaids returned, they stood outside, calling, ‘Lord! Lord! Open the door for us!’

    12 “But he called back, ‘Believe me, I don’t know you!’

    13 “So you, too, must keep watch! For you do not know the day or hour of my return.

    Revelation 19:7 NLT
    Let us be glad and rejoice,and let us give honor to him.For the time has come for the wedding feast of the Lamb,and his bride has prepared herself.

  3. The first passage that came to mind was that passage in Revelation 21 that A.Marie referenced above.
