Easter brings good news because it is the anchor of hope for every believer. We serve a God who believes in bringing dead things back to life by faith, and that’s good news! We believe that no matter what death or loss or tragedy you’ve experienced, we serve a God who turns those things into good. We serve a God who performs miracles. The resurrection matters because when Jesus was raised from the dead, heaven was opened up to everyone — to all who believed in Him then, and to all who believe in Him today. We don’t just go to heaven when we die, but heaven can come to earth here and now. Heaven opened up to the disciples in Jesus’ day, but it is also open now to all who believe in Christ as their Lord and Savior. And even to those who don’t.
