The R.O.C.K. Club Wants You to Consider Jesus’ Sacrifice and Restoration
This Easter, our staff at The R.O.C.K. Club
in Radford, VA, wants you to consider what the resurrection means for you. For many people, the holiday will come and go without a thought to its true meaning. Some may even attend a church service, but only because “that’s what you do on Easter.” But few will truly ponder the real meaning of Easter, and what it personally means to them. Don’t let the day pass you by this year without thinking about what Jesus did for you. We want you to truly think about it, and then act on it!
What is the Resurrection?
It could be that, to you, Easter only means chocolates, candy, and sneaky bunnies. You may have never heard the real reason behind the holiday. Easter is a remembrance of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus was put to death on a cross in Jerusalem about 2,000 years ago. But three days after His burial, He rose from the dead. But how is this possible? It is possible because He is the Son of God! The Bible tells us in Matthew 19:26, “… With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” After His resurrection, Jesus many people saw him until He returned to Heaven 40 days later.
What the Resurrection Means for You
Your question now may be, “What does one event that happened 2,000 years ago have to do with me?” And, you may also ask, why did He have to die at all? Jesus came to die and rise again for you personally! We are all sinners, and since God is holy, He can’t abide sin. People are bound for a Godless eternity in Hell because of our wrong actions. There is nothing we can do to save ourselves. But God loves you so much that He sent Jesus to take your place.
Jesus’s death paid your debt, and His resurrection gives us eternal life! In the Bible, Romans 5:6, 8, 10 read, “For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. … God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. … For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.” That is what the resurrection means for you.
Please Give Your Life to Jesus
The Bible says because of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection, whoever will believe and ask Him to save them will be saved. There is no special requirement or qualification for salvation. The 19th century preacher Charles Spurgeon said that our only qualification for salvation is our lack of qualification. Please consider giving your life to Jesus right now!
