Adam and Eve were forbidden by God from eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden. God said, “In the day you eat of it, you shall surely die.”
Our first parents did not trust the Word of God and instead rebelled, ate of the tree and plunged humanity into sin, misery, judgment and death. This great rebellion is ominously called, “The Fall.”
But God, who is rich in mercy, love and justice did not leave us to suffer in this fallen condition forever. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to satisfy God’s judgment on our rebellion once and for all. He died on the Cross, atoning for our rebellion and reversing our condition.
But that was not the end of the story. After three days in the tomb, he rose again, conquering all the effects of the Fall, including sickness, sorrow, and death.
Easter Sunday celebrates the fulfillment of the plan of God to bring victory over death to His people. Come and celebrate the new life that only Jesus can provide!
