The resurrection of Jesus is the hinge upon which all of our faith swings. If Jesus was not raised from the dead, our faith is in vain. This Easter we celebrate that Jesus is not dead, He is alive! Too often we have become comfortable with the Easter story in such a way that we miss an opportunity to embrace the life giving person of Jesus. He is not some dead historical figure. He is the living Son of God. Just as He said would happen, Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead.
