Easter Devotional – April 2nd

When a boxer enters into a ring, he is focused. The crowds around him are intensely cheering and waiting for the fight to begin. Yet, his focus does not waiver and his demeanor can’t be shaken. All of his training, the long hours of practice, and the late nights spent at the gym, have all been in preparation for this moment. The moment where he takes his place in the ring, to overcome his opponent. In Matthew 21:6-11, it records Christ’s triumphal entry into the city of Jerusalem. Jesus did not enter the city on the back of a horse, but on the back of a donkey. He did not come to bring war, but peace. He came with one mission in mind, one goal…to defeat death, hell, and the grave. Everything He had done up until this moment in time, was all in preparation for the fight He was about to endure. This fight, was not for Himself, but for you and me. This weekend, we celebrate that victorious fight which took place over 2,000 years ago on Calvary. We celebrate a risen Savior, who defeated death, so that through His blood we may have life. Let us not forget why we celebrate this amazing holiday. It is not about the candy, rabbits, eggs, and gifts. It is about our Champion who overcame our adversary on our behalf. Jesus conquered all of hell, Jesus was victorious, Jesus is undisputed.
