Christians all over the world observe Easter in holy assemblies to honour Christ’s victory over death in Matthew 28:1-15. We are saved by a Gospel that tells us that Jesus died on the Cross for our sins and rose from the dead. Embracing this message by faith is what saves us. The blood Jesus shed on the cross of Calvary, the blood that dripped from His hands, feet and head is the most precious commodity in the history of mankind. Jesus Christ has purchased, at the price of great sufferings, salvation, deliverance, healing and all of God’s blessings.


One thing we must bear in our mind: satan discusses our past because that is the only information, he has about us, while Jesus discusses our future.


He has come to put an end to our past and to give us a new life that is full and free. Imagine a life free of guilt, fear, condemnation, inferiority complex! What a blessed life!

 Romans 6:4 – “Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.’’


When we talk of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, we are talking of the rare opportunity He has given to all believers to experience a new beginning – a situation in which every dead area of our lives receives life anew.


We are dead to our past and alive to our future. Sin’s power over us is broken and we now put on Christ’s new life: we live in Him, move in Him and have our being in Him. Herein lies the significance of resurrection.


This Easter, be released into a new life –  God’s agenda! Let the power of resurrection, of Easter, flow into your life, in newness of life!


Let Christ’s life, abundant life begin to flow in your spiritual life, emotional life, physical life in the name of Jesus!


“Let’s take a lesson from David who was ready to be humiliated in his own eyes, so that God could be honoured. Ask yourself: Where does honouring God appear in your list of priorities? Do you thank Him for all that He has done in your life, all the way long? While men look at the outside, God looks at the motives of the heart. Instead of worrying about the opinion of others concerning you, let the motive of your heart each day be to honour God before yourself.”


“There is no time to do what is right. We must set our heart to obey the Word of God, all the time. God’s kind of lifestyle calls us to do what is right in the sight of God at all times, even though it is contrary to what we naturally want to do. Choosing to do what is right is a great test to the flesh.

What is the sacrifice of righteousness? Choosing to do God’s will rather than our own. When our flesh says hate, God says love. It takes sacrificial love to love your enemy and to pray for them. These are the weapons of righteousness. This is the sacrifice that Jesus looks at and rewards. Even though that might not be a grand, or outward sacrifice, it is what Jesus values.”


“How many of us like the people within the dying city, struck by famine, give in to fear, desperation and refuse to venture outside when God has chased our enemy away? Fear can cripple and torment us, and rob us of life’s opportunities. How many minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and even years have been wasted due to fear.”
