One of the things that makes Easter so enjoyable to me is the ability to read through (or watch) the story of Jesus as it unfolded (Mark 14-16; Matthew 26-28; Luke 22-24; and John 12-20). These events remind me that I was purchased with a great price (1 Corinthians 6:20, Galatians 3:13-14 and 1 Peter 1:18-19) and that Jesus was willing to pay this great price (Romans 5:8). I often have to stop at this point – Jesus who is Divine was willing to step down into an earthly body in order to live a life of righteousness (a life without sin) and then become my personal (yours as well) payment to cover all of my sins past, present and future – so I could in faith and repentance (also given to me by Him) have this applied to my life. I am set free (John 8:36). Free to make new choices, before I was limited to my 5 senses and my own reasoning but now I can add the wisdom, discernment and help of the Lord through prayer to make my decisions. What a different life! A life that is no longer lived alone or dependent only on myself and others but a life that can be in personal relationship with God.




A Few Wonderful Blessings Jesus Made Possible:

  • I am the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21).
  • I am free (John 8:36).
  • I am blessed with every spiritual blessing from the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:3)
  • I am chosen by God to be holy and without blame before Him in love (Ephesians 1:4)
  • I have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16)
  • I have the fruit of the Holy Spirit against which there is no law (Galatians 5:22-23)
  • I am privileged of God to be His ambassador (2 Corinthians 5:20)
  • I am able to voice His praise (Psalm 66:2)

There are so many other scripture verses that we could add to this list. However, I think you see what I am trying to say – Jesus, because of His great love for us, paid a huge price to give us more than we could think dream or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).



Let’s take time this Easter season to reflect on Jesus’ story and how it can change/has changed our lives for the better.
