Dying and Living
by Berni Dymet
2 Cor. 5:17 So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!
Easter's about dying and living. Jesus dying on the cross to pay for all the things I've done in rebelling against God and then rising again to give us a new life - and you.
So many people celebrate Easter - but they've never entered into the death and the resurrection. It's not complicated. Actually, the essence of it is very simple. God sent Jesus to pay for our sin - believe in that, and you're forgiven.
That's where most people think it ends. Good - I believe I'm into heaven. But … believing and forgiveness is just the beginning. God wants a new life for us.
And that means going to the Cross with Jesus - dying to the old things. Dying to the things that constituted our rebellion against Him. And that hurts.
And then He wants us to go through that empty tomb - to rise to a new life, a new self: Clean and pure and ready for a new life.
That's Easter. That's it.
