Encouragement for your daily walk with God
What is of first importance in your life? Pastor Rick Warren has said that you can tell what is most important to a person by looking at their checkbook and their calendar. In other words, you can tell what takes first place in your your life by what do and where you spend your money.
God showed what was most important to Him. He sent Jesus to die in our place. Paul said it beautifully, “But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” [Romans 5:8]. Furthermore, in raising Jesus from the dead, God demonstrated once and for all that our salvation was His top priority.
Dear Christ follower, there is nothing greater than the saving work of Jesus. And Easter gives us the grand opportunity to refocus and to thank God for what is most important. That’s why Easter should be more than just a once-a-year event.
Because we are moved and motivated by what Christ accomplished on Calvary’s cross, let’s give Him the best of our time, talents, and treasures. There’s a bridge in the Hillsong United song, Mighty to Save, that says:
Shine your light and let the whole world see,
We’re singing for the glory of the risen King!

Let Easter continue. Let Christ’s saving work in you be a light for the entire world to see!
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, the He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
