What Easter is all about and Why it Matters

You’ve finished setting up the campsite and you’ve had your fill of Easter eggs and now that you’ve got a moment to think, perhaps you’re wondering.. what is Easter all about?

By 96five Thursday 14 Apr 2022EasterReading Time: 2 minutes

What makes Easter so significant that we get a 4-day weekend to celebrate? Should we even be celebrating?

These are all great questions and you’re not alone if you’re asking them this Easter weekend.

Easter is all about love, forgiveness and new life for everyone.

96five’s Alex Milne will unpack the Easter message during our special Easter Services explaining how consequences exist when we break natural and physical laws and how it’s not dissimilar to the consequences of breaking God’s laws, what the Bible refers to as sin.

“God cannot have anything to do with sin and so when we sin we are effectively cut off from God, our Heavenly Father. Yet God doesn’t want that situation to continue. Enter Jesus, God’s son. On that first Good Friday, he suffered the consequences of our sin, of all sin for all time” – Alex Milne

Despite appearances, the Easter story is a good news story.
