Easter is all about winning. The minute Jesus walked out of the tomb, sin and death had been defeated. Better yet, through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, we Christians have been given that same power. However, in spite of the cross, we allow ourselves to become bogged down by the things of this world and tainted by the stain of our sin and the sins of others.
We were not created to be slaves to sin, to live and die based on the collective condition of our hearts, but to be set free and to live life to the full. The Bible says “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” (Jeremiah 17:9). The answer of course is the One who created the heart – your and my Heavenly Father.
Do you know God? Have you accepted the gift of life and freedom that He offers through the blood of His Son? Do you have the power of the Holy Spirit within you? Have you conquered sin and death in your own life? Are you a winner this Easter?
