Easter is a most joyous time in Christendom. It is the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus, the Messiah. It is a time when we reflect upon the truth of the Gospel – that Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead. Although we see Easter only one time in the King James Bible (Acts 12:4), truly it is synonymous with the Resurrection. The Resurrection is proof that Jesus had victory over death and that everyone who believes in what He did on that cross will also live life eternal. Let’s take a look at some Christian Easter and Resurrection Quotes that I hope will be uplifting for you.
