On Friday we celebrated what we call Good Friday.
Good Friday is the celebration of the crucifixion and death of Jesus on the cross. It is the day Jesus willingly gave His life for us — anyone who would choose to accept Him as their Lord and Savior. It was a great day for humanity. Without His sacrifice we would all be separated from God forever. It was a great day for all of God’s creation. It is called redemption.
Then on Sunday we celebrate His resurrection from the dead — that He died but was raised from the dead. Because of His resurrection we, anyone who chooses to believe on Him, can have eternal life and a real relationship with the Father — the only one and true God. Now we can be saved, for anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Anyone! It is a gift God gave to His creation. We are all His creation, but only those who call on the name of Jesus, repent from their sins, and purpose to follow Him will be saved — not by their works, but because of the sacrifice of Jesus.
We are saved by grace through faith, and that not of ourselves; it is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8). Because of His sacrifice on Friday and His resurrection on Sunday, anyone who chooses to call on His name shall be saved. The power of one decision — it can change your life for eternity.
Let’s choose life, choose Jesus.
Just a thought,
