Easter is Your Turning Point

Easter is Your Turning Point

Easter always reminds me of when I first became a Christian and accepted God into my life. I was in high school, and I remember sitting down with my youth leader as he explained the sacrifice that Jesus made for me. Each year, I leave the Easter service at my church with a new attitude, on fire for God, and wanting to make my relationship with God even better. Easter is a reminder of the amazing work Jesus Christ did for us by defeating death, rising from the grave, and conquering sin for all who believe in Him. You might have heard an inspiring Easter message, but what happens when your emotional connection fades? Read how to make this Easter your turning point from a hot-and-cold relationship with God to a steadily growing closeness with the Savior.
