Jesus is ALIVE.
1 Corinthians 15:17 – “And if Christ had not been raised back to life, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of sin.”
Faith is having a complete trust or confidence in someone or something. As a Christian, it is important that we believe in God even though we cannot physically see Him.
The Bible says in Hebrews 11:6 that we need faith to please God, and that without it, it is impossible to please Him.
Our faith is known by how we live our lives. You know an apple tree by its fruit. An apple tree should have apples on it, not oranges. The same works for Christians. Faith is shown by how often we pray, spend time with God, and love the people around us.
What does having faith look like to you?

Sin is when we do not obey God commands. (Stealing, lying, cheating, idols, etc.) Because of Adam and Eve in the Garden we have all been accused with sin and need to be cleansed before we can enter into Heaven. However as imperfect human beings, we cannot do that on our own. So Jesus Christ came to die for our sins and raise back to life so that we can have eternal life, meaning we can spending forever after we die with God in Heaven. It isn’t until we ask God to forgive us and to be the leader of our lives that we can spend an eternity with Him.
What are some sins or obstacles that are in the way of your relationship with God?
What can you do to make sure that you are living the way God wants you live?
Thank you God for the opportunity to read your Word. Thank you that you have made a way for me to be forgiven of my sins. Jesus it is because you laid your life down that I have been forgiven of my sins. And it is because you rose that I can spend an eternity with you in Heaven. Teach me to live how your Word tells me to. In Jesus name, Amen.
