We die because we are supposed to. Our earthly life is not forever. But that was not how it was supposed to be. We were to enjoy our life forever. But our first parents, Adam and Eve, thought of themselves more highly than their Creator. So we die.

We die because of the evil we carry in our hearts. If we compared ourselves to our Holy God we can see how filthy our hearts are. But even then God isn't happy leaving us in such a pitiful damnation.

No God sent His Son to be among us. He took our flesh and nailed it to the cross. In our place He met the demands of the Law. For every time we broke God's Law in thought, word and deed, He paid the penalty on our behalf. And how do we know this is true? Jesus, the Son of God, rose from the dead. Death has been defeated.

Do we see our need to die? Do we see our hope in the Resurrection. This Easter, let us rejoice knowing that Jesus paid the debt for our sins by every single drop of blood on the Cross.
