In my blog post about Good Friday, I shared how Jesus died for our sins.
However, the story continues on the Sunday following his death when Jesus was resurrected. In other words, Jesus rose from death and walked among the living again.
The importance of the resurrection is in the fact that the Messiah, Jesus Christ taught much truth about life and made many promises that if we live a wholesome life, we would one day get to live in the Kingdom of God. One of the promises that Jesus made is that after he was crucified, he would be brought back to life. And, when he was brought back to life he would then be the avenue in which we could have a direct line of communication with God.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

The recital and dance interpretation seen in this video present a deep and dynamic rendition of Jesus’ resurrection. Death could not hold him down. He came back to life and now we are redeemed because of his sacrifice.
In spite of the fact that the greatest person in history died on Good Friday, this is a day that many people celebrate.
Why? On this day, a most precious man took up a cross and carried it on His back to the place where He would die for our sins. In the days when living sacrifices (unblemished and pure) had to be offered to atone for our sins, a man, Jesus Christ (being the only living human who was sinless and pure) was chosen and lovingly agreed to suffer to death so that the sins of sinners could be forgiven.
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
After his death on Good Friday, Jesus rose to life on Easter Sunday. This is good news for us because after that day, we were no longer required to offer a living sacrifice to be forgiven of our sins. No, my friends, on that day, whenever we want to be forgiven, we only need to look to Jesus, our Savior, to forgive us.
Jesus has always been the way to our Father’s house.
I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Today’s Video is About a Story of Love
Jesus loved us so much that he gave His life for us. He suffered. He died on that cross so that we may be forgiven of our sins and have salvation and be worthy of entering into the Kingdom of God.
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
