Letter to the editor: The meaning of Easter

Friday, March 15, 2013 - 12:01 am

Spring is on the way, and here we are in the Easter season, too, which brings new life.

Read Isaiah chapters 52 and 53. “He was bruised for our iniquities, his punishment brought us peace. He made intercession for sinners.”

In John 14:6, Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.”

Isaiah 5: “I summon you by name so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting men may know there is none besides me. I am the Lord and there is no other. Woe to him who quarrels with his maker.”

One day we will stand at the judgment seat of God (Revelation 20). Be sure you know Christ as your Savior. He was the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. He is merciful and He forgives. Read God’s word.

Happy Easter.
