Easter Day

Very early on Sunday morning, at sunrise, they went to the tomb. On the way they said to one another, "Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?" Then they looked up and saw that the stone had already been rolled back. So, they entered the tomb, where they saw a young man sitting on the right, wearing a white robe - and they were alarmed. "Don't be alarmed," he said. "I know you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is not here - he has been raised! Look, here is the place where he was placed."
Mark 16:2-6

Easter Garden 2

Jesus’ friends went to visit His tomb, they found that God had raised Jesus up to a new and eternal (everlasting) life. The Bible tells us that if we repent of (are really sorry for) our sins, we can ask God to forgive us and He will. Jesus can help to help us start living our lives the way God wants us to. We too can have eternal life, even after our bodies have died.

If you would like to tell God that you are sorry and try to live the way He wants, please continue to the section below, which may help you to do this.


Here is a simple prayer that involves three parts: sorry; thank you; and please. (Sometimes called The Believer’s Prayer, or The Sinner’s Prayer)

"Lord Jesus Christ, I am sorry for the things I have done wrong in my life (take a few moments to ask his forgiveness for anything particular that is on your conscience).  Please forgive me. I now turn from everything that I know is wrong.

Thank you that you died on the cross for me, so that I could be forgiven and set free. Thank you that you offer me forgiveness and the gift of your Spirit.

I now receive that gift. Please come into my life by your Holy Spirit to be with me forever.  Thank you, Lord Jesus, Amen."
