Jesus is Dead.
He’s alive. Gotcha.
Anyway, today is kind of a big deal. A few thousand years ago, death was defeated. How crazy is that?!? Most of the common fears and anxieties people face today revolve around a fear of death. When you’re scared to be up high, you don’t want to fall down and die. When you’re scared of the ocean, you don’t want to be swept out to sea and left to drown. When you’re claustrophobic, you don’t want to be stuck somewhere that would make you suffocate. Almost all of our fears are rooted in a common fear of death and dying!
But here’s the thing: we can be free from those fears.
Jesus literally already fixed the problem! Today is a day to remember that and celebrate the unending love we receive from Him.
Happy Easter, friends.
