    Easter Sunday: Because He Lives

    April 5, 2015

    “Jesus Christ lived. He walked the Holy Land, working miracles and teaching truth. Then He was crucified. But His death was not the end. Because of His Resurrection, we will live again. Because of His sacrifice, we can rise above sin to experience true joy. Because He lives, we can find His help and healing every day of our lives.”

    Those are the powerful first words you will read when you visit today, Easter Sunday. To celebrate the life of Jesus Christ this Easter season, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has shared the joyful message of His life, Atonement, and Resurrection with the world.

    Your friends and family may have shown you the Easter video the Church released about a week ago. You may also have seen the tag #BecauseHeLives on the social media posts of those you follow, including the Church. We have encouraged anyone who believes in Jesus Christ to spread the word.

    Because Jesus Christ came to earth, died for us, and rose from the tomb on the third day after His death, you will never be truly hopeless. Because He lives, you can make changes, you can make progress, and you too will be resurrected after death.
