Hello everyone! I haven’t done a Scripture Saturday in a while and I am excited to be posting another one.
Today I want to share with you some of my favorite Easter themed Scriptures. I hope these passages/Scriptures strengthen you and give you hope. I also encourage you to look these up on your own and read for yourself what Easter is all about.
- Matthew 28:5-6, “The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay.'” I like this verse because it is the first time in the Bible where it is proclaimed that God’s plan for salvation is complete. To me you can almost feel the happiness of the angel as he says the words above!
- Colossians 1:13-14, “For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” I like this verse because it proclaims that Jesus is our Rescuer and Redeemer from sin and darkness. He loves us and has brought us into His Kingdom.
- Matthew 4:16, “…the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” I love that phrase-“…a light has dawned.”
- Ephesians 1:7-8a, “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that He lavished on us.” God has lavished forgiveness and grace upon us! Isn’t that comforting to know that we don’t have to be perfect, for He sent His Son to be perfect for us!
And now for my all time favorite…!:
Amen, amen, amen, and amen! When I read that last verse, I am reminded of God’s great power and might. Death couldn’t stop God’s wonderful plan of salvation and redemption for all the lost souls this world will ever carry. His resurrection and death is our victory, His story and life are ours to learn from, and His ever changing love and forgiveness is our song.
