A fellow blogger asked the question, “What does Easter mean to you?” I responded,
“I was a prisoner of my own sin nature, bound with heavy chains, condemned to everlasting death and hopelessness. Then Someone offered to take my penalty on Himself, and as He suffered excruciating death, my chains fell off, and I was free!
“But free to go where? – Now what?
“Next thing I know, there He stands – He’s ALIVE! He looks at me with love and says, “Follow Me.” And life is just beginning.
And that’s what Easter means to me.
