Easter Bible Verses that will inspire you everyday!

Easter Bible Verses that will inspire you everyday

If you have come here looking for inspiring Easter Bible verses, you are in the right place! I pray that these verses will give you encouragement and inspiration as we prepare for this momentous holiday season.

Easter is THE Christian holiday. It represents the most important and fundamental belief of our Christian faith, the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Without the resurrection Christianity would be pointless. But because of it we have hope of a future here on earth and in heaven with Him.

It is no small wonder that we are the only world religion that worships a living god. Jesus is alive! He has risen from the grave! Easter is the time we set aside to remember the sacrifice of our loving Savior. So let’s celebrate Him today!

Classic Easter Scriptures…

These verses are perfect for writing in Easter cards, Sunday School lessons, or reading aloud at your Easter dinner and egg hunt.

 

He is risen! He is not here.

                          Mark 16:6

 

Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.

                                                    1 Corinthians 15:12-14

 

He is not here; but has risen! Remember how He spoke to you, when He was still in Galilee, saying, The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again.

                                                         Luke 24:6-7

 

And when they had come to a place called Golgotha, that is to say Place of the Skull, they gave Him sour wine mingled with gall to drink. But when He had tasted it, He would not drink.

Then they crucified Him, and divided His garments, casting lots, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet:

They divided My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.

                                                           Matthew 27:33-36

 

to whom He also presented Himself alive after his suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.

                                                             Acts1:3

 

Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two. And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Having said this, He breathed His last. So when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying “Certainly this was a righteous Man!”

                                                            Luke 23:45-47

 

So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.

                                                           John 19:30

 

And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them.

                                                            Acts 4:33

So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit. John 19:30 #Easter #BibleVersesClick To Tweet

In His Own Words: Jesus spoke about His impending death and resurrection…

There is nothing better than the words of Jesus! You just can’t improve on them. Jesus knew what was going to happen to Him, yet He still chose the cross. And to “hear” His words flow through our lives as we read them is an amazing experience.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”

                                                           John 11:25

 

I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this? John 11:25 #Easter #BibleVersesClick To Tweet

For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

                                                          Matthew 12:40

 

The Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men, and they will kill Him, and on the third day He will be raised up.

                                                          Matthew 17:22

 

All of you will be made to stumble because of Me this night, for it is written:

I will strike the Shepherd,

And the sheep of the flock will be scattered.

But after I have been raised, I will go before you to Galilee.

                                                          Matthew 26:31-32

 

Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priest and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death and deliver Him to the Gentiles; and they will mock Him, and scourge Him, and spit on Him, and kill Him. And on the third day He will rise again.

                                                           Mark 10:33-34

 

Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

                                                          John 2:19

 

Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.

                                                           John 10:17-18

 

Old Testament Prophecies of Jesus death and resurrection…

These scriptures plainly show how much forethought went into the coming of the Messiah and His sacrifice on the cross. Before time began God was making a way for us to be with Him. He had a plan, a plan to redeem us through His Son.

For me, these verses kick start my faith when I need it the most. When I read them, fear and doubt disappear and all that is left is the peace which surpasses all understanding. (Philippians 4:7)

 For You will not leave my soul in Sheol,

Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

                                                            Psalm 16:10

For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption. Psalm 16:10 #Easter #BibleVersesClick To Tweet

 

For dogs have surrounded Me;

The congregation of the wicked has

enclosed Me.
They pierced My hands and My feet;

I can count all My bones.

They look and stare at Me.

They divide My garments among them,

And for My clothing they cast lots.

                                                        Psalm 22:16-18

 

And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; and they will look on Me whom they have pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.

                                                     Zechariah 12:10

 

For I know that My Redeemer lives,

And He shall stand at last on the earth;

                                                   Job 19:25

 

He will swallow up death forever,

And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces;

The rebuke of His people

He will take away from all the earth;

For the Lord has spoken.

                                                 Isaiah 25:8

 

But He was wounded for our transgressions,

He was bruised for our iniquities;

The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,

And by His stripes we are healed.

All we like sheep have gone astray;

We have turned, every one, to his own way;

And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

                                                Isaiah 53:5-6

                                       

God planned the death and resurrection of Christ very carefully. Each intricate detail thought out and painstakingly put into place so that we could have complete confidence in our faith and salvation. Because of Jesus’s death we have forgiveness of sin. Because of His resurrection we have eternal life in Him. Praise the Lord, we serve a Risen and Living Savior!

Have a very happy Easter and may God bless you!

A Risen Savior – Mark 16:6

A Risen Savior Mark 16:6

     

He is risen! He is not here.
                                Mark 16:6

What an exciting statement! Jesus has conquered death and has risen from the grave!
All over the world Christians are preparing to celebrate Easter. This is our holiday! It’s a time to reflect on the fact that Christ has saved us from our sin by His resurrection. No other religion worships a risen Savior as we do. Jesus Christ is alive and well!

Jesus suffered great pain and humiliation on the cross. But this suffering turned to victory when He rose again. Because of Jesus’s resurrection we have hope for a future life after death with Him. Without the resurrection all hope of heaven would be lost. The apostle Paul wrote about our hope in Christ and the futile nature of hope without the resurrection.

Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.
                                                                                    1 Corinthians 15:12-14

The resurrection is the central component of our Christian faith. It is essential to our belief in Jesus and without it our faith would be empty.

But our faith is not empty. It is based on these facts:

#1 Jesus lived a sinless life so that He could pay the price for our sin.

For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
                                                                                    2 Corinthians 5:21

#2 Jesus died on the cross in our place.

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us ( for it is written, Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree.)
Galatians 3:13

#3 Jesus rose from the grave on the third day.

He is not here; but has risen! Remember how He spoke to you, when He was still in Galilee, saying, The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again.
                                                                                    Luke 24:6-7

He is risen! He is not here. Mark 16:6 Click To Tweet

#4 Jesus’s resurrection was witnessed by over five hundred people.

He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me, as one born out of due time.
                                                                                   1 Corinthians 15:5-8

#5 Jesus spent forty days on earth before His ascension to heaven.

to whom He also presented Himself alive after his suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.

                                                                                       Acts1:3

These facts, or infallible proofs as Paul called them, are not happenstance. God planned the death and resurrection of Christ very carefully so that we could have complete confidence in our faith and salvation. Because of Jesus’s death we have forgiveness of sin. Because of His resurrection we have eternal life in Him. Praise the Lord, we serve a Risen Savior!

What is the Meaning of an Easter Egg? – John 11:25

What is the Meaning of an Easter Egg? John 11:25

Easter is almost here! In our house and in our church, we’re preparing for the upcoming celebration. Part of that celebration is the annual Easter egg hunt. Soon, we will hard-boil eggs to dye them, or fill plastic eggs with jelly beans and chocolate. It’s a lot of fun for the kids to decorate the eggs. Then, we in turn, have fun hiding the eggs and watching as the kids hunt for them. Their faces lighting up in glee when they see the pastel colors peeking out from the grass.

But is there a deeper meaning behind this Easter tradition? What is the meaning of an Easter egg?

Traditionally, an egg represents the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the new life we have in Him. The boiling symbolizes the sealing of the tomb where Jesus was laid. And the cracking of the egg is a symbol of Jesus’s resurrection, bursting forth in victory over death. These words of Jesus show us the importance of the resurrection.

I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this? 

                                                         John 11:25-26

With this one statement Jesus told us so much about Himself and about our identity in Him.

I am the resurrection and the life…

Jesus is the resurrection. It was by His own power that He conquered death and rose from the grave. Jesus is the life. Because of Him we can experience a new life through our belief in Him.

He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live…

Physically we will all die, it’s just a fact. But spiritually, we have a choice of where we want to spend eternity. If we chose to follow, Jesus we will live in heaven forever with Him! If we chose not to follow Jesus, then we won’t have this promised spiritual life after death and we will be condemned to hell.

Whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die…

We should be living our lives here on earth for Jesus. We should be spreading the good news of salvation in Jesus to everyone around us. My pastor recently put it in perspective by sharing this. “Jesus is the headline, we are just the paperboy.” I love that statement! It speaks volumes to me and makes me see my role so much more clearly.

Do you believe this?…

God is always concerned with the condition of our heart. With this simple question, Jesus is prompting us to take action! What is the condition of our heart? Do we believe and trust in Jesus? Are we certain about where we will go when we die? Have we given our life over to Jesus? Are we living for Him right here and right now? These are the questions that we need to answer before we can move forward.

I hope that you will take the time during this Easter holiday to answer these questions in your life. To really nail down what motivates you.

If you haven’t accepted Jesus as your Savior yet, now is the time. The free gift of salvation is yours for the taking. If you have questions about what it means to be saved, you can read more about it in the Accepting Jesus section, or please go to your local church and ask the pastor to speak with you about it. I know that they will be happy to talk to you.

If you are already a Christian and have fallen away from the faith or have lost the luster you once felt for Christ, Easter is the perfect time to reconnect with the joy of your salvation. There is a peace that only comes from knowing Jesus, and you can find it again. Draw near to Him and He will draw near to you. (James 4:8)
Happy Easter to all of you and May God bless you greatly!
