I am the second oldest of a big family. I am a extreme teen for Christ. I love writing and would love to help teens through my writing. I feel like I have a lot to share with those teens that tend to be forgotten, those average christian teens! I also have a good sense of humor heehee. (sometimes)

One man, one cross, one Sunday, one cave? Why are these so significant? Why are these objects so important and why are they tied into such a blessed event? Easter is a time that gets us all thinking about eggs and candy, but there is something much more important about this day. This is that story.

Jesus was a man, but he was more than that, he was the Son of God, a savior for his people. He was also perfect, the only human born completely without sin who chose to take the punishment. What punishment is that? Death, the ultimate punishment for anyone who sins. For the penalty of sin is death. Jesus was taken and nailed to a cross, jeered at, and made to wear a crown of thorns. Jesus died, leaving all of his followers behind stunned that they had lost their only hope. So why did he do it? If he was the Son of God why did he choose to die such a torturous death? He did it so that you can have life. For the penalty of sin is death, but through him you can have life. Jesus who was with out sin died so that through him you can have life, eternal life with him in heaven. But the news gets better, he rose again, he rolled the stone away from his tomb and walked right out. He didn’t just die, he conquered death. This is why we celebrate Easter, we celebrate his beautiful gift and celebrate that he rose from the dead. That is the real reason for Easter.
When he died, he replaced your punishment for sin to give you the gift of life; he is waiting for you to take it. All you have to do is ask, ask him into your heart and he will give you life. A life that is better than you can ever imagine. It only takes one simple step, prayer. Pray and ask God into your heart. It is not heart and you don’t have to have all the right words. Just tell him what is in your heart.

Happy Easter Everyone- Jessica
