The significance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave for me goes beyond Christ’s victory over sin and death. Through the narrative of John 20, Jesus’ resurraction symbolises the never ending expanse of God’s love, grace and mercy for us. We have been set free from our past, set free from our guilt and surrounded by His love for us. His resurrection from the grave was the turning point for humanity and an invitation to us all to a life full of hope, love, joy and peace.
“God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.’ ” - Billy Graham
