20 Bible Verses For Easter
Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses for Easter. Easter is a period of reconciliation with God. It is a period when we remember the great sacrifice Christ made with his life on the cross of Calvary. And beyond the sacrifice, it also teaches us about the undying love of the father towards us.
The scripture said while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Jesus took the blame for our sin and paid for it on the cross. Many people may wonder why Christ has to die when God is powerful to destroy sin and the devil who is the mastermind of all evil things.
It is important to know that the creation of the earth is based on principles. Our God is highly principled. That’s why there are principles to everything on earth. The rule of saving a soul is letting another go. God couldn’t have bypassed that principle. That’s why Christ had to sacrifice himself for the redemption of man.
Meanwhile, it is not only God that loves mankind. Christ also loves man. That’s why he could take upon himself the burden of pain and death. Easter teaches us that as we have been saved through the death and resurrection of Christ, we must work toward saving other people.
Also, it teaches us that we have power over death through Christ Jesus. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. Christ died so we don’t perish and that’s what Easter is about.
We have compiled a list of 20 Bible verses for Easter to further increase our knowledge.

Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

5. 1 Corinthians 15:14-20
And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain.

For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
