On Passover, the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Nissan, Jesus died for us. Three days later He was resurrected, and this is the day the world celebrates as Easter. Well then, happy Easter! This event— Jesus dying for us—is the single biggest event in human history. It changed everything. Before Jesus' death, things between God and man were very different. When sin happened someone had to pay, and the wages of sin is death. Jesus paid this debt with His life. So when you read the Bible, ask yourself the question, "In this story, has Jesus died yet?" It may be that you are studying how things used to work, before Christ died, like the story of Job, about a man who had no redeemer. This isn't you. You have a Redeemer. So what am I saying? When you read the word of God, always see it through the cross of Jesus Christ. Jesus died. He got what you deserved. So now, by faith, you have access to all that He earned. You can live in His righteousness, in His holiness, and that’s something we can all celebrate!
