On the 2nd of April this year we celebrated Passover, for many this was just a welcomed long weekend, but for me it meant and means so much more! The Crucifixion and The Resurrection of Jesus Christ, a celebration of my Faith and God’s abundant Grace for those who believe.


Luke 24:44-49
He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything
must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and
the Psalms.” Then he opened their minds so they could understand the
Scriptures. He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and
rise from the dead on the third day and repentance for the forgiveness of sins
will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are
witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has
promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on
high”.


The Disciples didn’t see or know how it would all work out. The delay required the disciples to wait in expectation, hope and trust in Jesus’ Word. Waiting on the Lord may seem hopeless at times, but in contrary it is the
opposite. Waiting produces perseverance, perseverance character, character hope and hope will not disappoint. Wait expectantly with hearts full of faith and do not miss what God has in store for you in times of waiting. The best is yet to
come!


The significance of Jesus’s crucifixion and resurrection is that Jesus who is also God, in the flesh, chose to die for us so that we may have life. What does this mean? This means that we receive an abundance of forgiveness and grace for
all of the wrongdoings that we’ve done, or sins that we’ve committed against others, ourselves, and above all, Him. There’s no limit to His forgiveness. We don’t have to continue to live in sin, guilt and shame, because our God died and
rose again, specifically so that we may be free from all guilt and shame. The reason we’re even able to repent of our sins to this day is because of the crucifixion and resurrection. Not only are we able to repent because of the
crucifixion and resurrection, but we’re also given the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit offers power and guidance throughout our lives.


John 3:16-17
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone
who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send
His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through
Him.”

If you need to rededicate or commit yourself to Christ then say this prayer and let Him transform you and your life starting today:

Father God thank you for sending your Son Jesus Christ to die for my sins. I make Him Lord and Saviour over my life. Forgive me and cleanse me of all unrighteousness. Help me to live for you daily and use me for Your Glory. I love you.

God bless you and remember that He created you for a reason and a purpose. You have greatness on the inside of you. Live your greatness daily!
