Every Day an Easter

The Easter message is one of eternal Life. It is also one of living Love. Throughout the world on Easter morning Christians pay tribute to Christ Jesus' victorious emergence from the tomb. This great, earthly triumph of the Master's illustrates the eternality of Life, God, and the uninterrupted existence of man in His likeness. Furthermore, it indicates Jesus' great love for God and men; this love impelled his acceptance of the experience on the cross and raised him from the grave.

Such love as Jesus' has been equaled by no one either before or since. He declared and proved for all men, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13; Jesus might have avoided the crucifixion had he thought only of himself. But his devotion to good, God, and to man inspired him to allow his enemies' attempted destruction of his human sense of life. In this way he was able to reveal to the world and to those about him the utter indestructibility of the Life divine, which man as God's perfect likeness reflects.
