We often think of Easter as God’s gift to us and it is, but it is so much more. When Jesus died on the cross, He opened up the opportunity for us to be restored back to our place in the Garden of Eden. But more than that, He restored God back to His place in the Garden. He also restored His own place back to the right hand of the Father and He released the Holy Spirit to indwell us on a continuous basis.
Jesus gave us the chance to reconnect with God. He gave God the opportunity to reconnect with His people. He took His place in the seat of authority again and He opened the door for the Spirit to work in us.
Easter isn’t just about what we gained. It was about restoring original purpose back to the universe. Hallelujah, what a Savior!
