Open Church: Easter special - What does the resurrection mean to you?

in Christian Fellowship2 years ago

Happy Easter brothers and sisters! Thanks for joining this very special edition of Open Church.

Open Church is a weekly post that aims to be a place where Christians on Steem can hang out, encourage and build up one another, and reflect the love of Christ. The church is not a building, but is made up of people who have been transformed by God’s grace.

Each week I will be putting up a new post with a new topic or theme for discussion. But feel free to come here just to fellowship and be a blessing to one another. Whatever denominational background your from, or if you’re just curious about the Christian faith, everyone is welcome.

So feel free to share a link to your favourite worship song, share a word of encouragement, a prayer request, or introduce yourself.

Today’s question is: What does the resurrection of Christ mean to you?

Personally, when all the evidence around the resurrection became too compelling for me, that was the moment I fully embraced the Christian faith. It was the single most important hinge that my faith rested upon, because when I grasped the resurrection, then everything else was easy for me to believe too. If God could raise Jesus from the dead, then of course every other miracle was possible too.

I want to also share a couple of songs with you all to celebrate what Christ has done.

God is Able by Hillsong

This is Amazing grace by Bethel Music

How about you. What does the resurrection mean to you? Feel free to share a song, scripture or any significant experiences you may have had.

He is risen!



The resurrection is the sign that we have an all-powerful God who overcame death to give us eternal life and that if He overcame death, there is nothing that can against him. He is the owner of life and he who wants life in abundance will have it if accepts He as his only true savior.
