So, what does the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus mean for you today? It means Jesus is the solution to your broken relationship with God and to the brokenness of the world, even our very own hearts. It means that everything sad, painful, broken, dysfunctional, will be done away with for those who put their trust in Jesus.
It means that you have two options. You can either remain in your rebellion against God through a continued life of self-focus and pleasure or through rejecting God’s gift by trying to be good on your own – an attempt that will never be sufficient or meet God’s expectations. Or, you can receive God’s gracious gift by turning from your rebellion and believing that what Jesus Christ did for you on the cross and in His resurrection covers your need before God. In fact, it does that and more.
What Jesus Christ did for you liberates you fully. It gives you the opportunity to not only be right with God but also to have a meaningful relationship with Him that is based on His love for you. You don’t have to try and fail anymore – Jesus satisfies your need with God. He also gives you the desire and the power to live for God. This reality and acceptance before God begins to transform every area of your life.
