I was asked the question yesterday, “Is the message of Easter still relevant in 2012?” The reasoning behind the question was that the Easter events happened 2000 years ago.
My answer was. The Easter message was still relevant because people still need to be saved. People are still caught up in sin and separated from God today just like they have been for centuries.
People need to hear about God’s love for them, that Jesus died for their sin and they can experience new life, forgiveness and eternal life with Christ when they die.
Yes the Easter message is still relevant and it is still needed until Jesus comes back for His people and ushers in His eternal Kingdom. It is as simple as that.
