How can the events of Easter transform the heart?
Let’s consider the events that took place on that first Good Friday and that first Easter morning. If they actually happened as events of history, then they are the defining events In all of life; in all of history. As Blaise Pascal observed, apart from Jesus, His crucifixion, and His resurrection, we cannot know the meaning of life, of our death, of God, or of anything else.
I contend that these Easter events have the power to convert and change the mind and the intellect, and to transform the heart. Today I want to consider how the cross and how the resurrection impact the mind and the heart. This is an important place to start as we live in an age of skepticism.
What is the foundation that I can build my faith and my belief on? Hebrews 2:9 says, “But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because He suffered death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.”
When the gospel of grace truly penetrates your heart, it will change you. It will transform you.
