The past few days we have talked about the bad news that Jesus was killed on a cross. But today we will talk about the good news. Jesus took on all the sins of the world. During that time, God and Jesus were separated. But God accepted Jesus’ sacrifice. Then God and Jesus were together again. The good news is that Jesus did not stay dead!
Today is Resurrection Day — the day when Christians around the world remember that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead on the third day. That was the completion of God’s plan. Because Jesus died, we can have our sins forgiven. And, because Jesus rose again, we can have the hope of eternal life with God in heaven.
I hope that you will take time today to be happy! Matthew 28:8 tells us about the women who went to Jesus’ tomb. “So the women left the tomb quickly. They were afraid, but they were also very happy. They ran to tell his followers what happened.”
How can you be happy? Think about what Jesus did for you. Think about what heaven will be like. If you are happy that Jesus rose again, I am sure you will want to share that Good News with someone today. Happy Resurrection Day!
