Lighthouse Treasures – April 2018

Romans 12:2
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.
Dear friends

Today I want to focus on the true meaning of Easter.

The true meaning of Easter is sometimes overlooked as we get caught up in the world where the traditions like the Easter bunny and Easter eggs are the main focus.   These traditions however have little to do with the story of Christ’s death and resurrection.  As Christian parents we have an obligation towards our children to teach them the true meaning of Easter which must be the death and resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

After His crucifixion on the third day, as Jesus had foretold, He arose to live, talk, and show himself again to hundreds of people (1 Corinthians 15:3–6). His resurrection was the ultimate proof of who He is and what He promised.  For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son to die for our sins and set us free.

Today you can know the power of the resurrection in your own life by truly believing what the Bible says about knowing God:

RECOGNIZE that without Christ you are separated from God, now and forever. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

REALIZE that God loves you, and believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

RECEIVE the risen Savior into your life by faith. “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12).

You can experience a changed life made possible all because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and therefore God wants you to experience for yourself what Easter is all about!

Let us as a Pharos family therefore take hands and ensure that our children will know the true meaning of Easter.
