Today is arguably the most important holiday in the Christian faith because today is the day that Jesus Christ rose from the dead, conquered sin, and saved us!
Growing up in a Christian home has been a blessing for so many reasons, but also not, because growing up around Christianity makes it easier to grow complacent with Christ, and to take Him for granted when that should never happen.
Every single day we wake up and take a breath, we have a new reason to thank God because it’s a new day that we don’t have to pay for because it’s already done, and we don’t have to be the same people we were before we knew Him. That’s so exciting to me! Even though I often think I am a terrible Christian (and human being, if I’m being honest) it’s mind-boggling to think that God still wants me as I am, and I can still turn my life around because of what Jesus did on the cross for me.
And He did it for you, too. You don’t have to stay the same anymore.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. – 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)
