    For most of the world?

    not much


    For those of us who know Christ?

    It's made all the difference in the world.

    Praise God.

      In the world, for the (me) believer in Jesus, it brought (brings) the joy of salvation, victory over death and the grave, eternal life, and our blessed hope.

      In the world, for the non-believer it is business as usual, no hope, and eternally lost without accepting Jesus as Savior by His atoning death and resurrection from the dead.

      Praise the Lord! Jesus is risen. And that for me is the absolute truth of John 14:6.

      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~ Leo Buscaglia

      The best portion of a person’s life -- are the little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love. ~ William Wordsworth

        1Co 15:12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
        1Co 15:13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
        1Co 15:14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
        1Co 15:15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
        1Co 15:16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
        1Co 15:17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
        1Co 15:18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
        1Co 15:19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
        1Co 15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
        1Co 15:21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
        1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
        1Co 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
        1Co 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.


        Rom 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
        Rom 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.


        And on a more practical level, it inspired his followers to spread the story of Jesus and the gospel.
        Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

          I recommend a book by a Christian (which I don't agree with on probably anything) on this called "When It Was Dark".

              A poem I wrote about four Easters ago.

              Nowadays I don't mind the extra trappings, given that I don't pay attention to them once the holiday itself arrives.

              This Season II
              Pagan birth: bunnies and eggs.
              Christian birth: reduced to the dregs.
              Hunting for candies,
              Hiding from God,
              We reduce our lot
              On this slowly-spinning clod.
              We’d rather have bunnies
              Of chocolate so sweet
              Than a Savior with nails
              In His hands and His feet.

              Lilies and dresses,
              Candies and eggs,
              Do nothing but insult
              His unbroken legs.
              Chewy bunnies and birdies
              Across tongues do slide,
              Hard-pressed to erase
              The spear in His side.

              The rolledaway stone,
              The neatfolded shroud,
              Give a chance for a home
              With Him in the clouds.
              “In many ways the evidence of our faith is found in our ability to control our tongue (or our keyboard)."
              -Adam Hamilton

              “Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.”
              -Ralph Waldo Emerson

                  we may never know all the ways; the good and the bad. I say, "bad," because people are not inherently good and twist a great many things from their origins, for personal selfishness, etc.

                  But in the end, the only change that really matters, is that the world was reconciled to God through the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

                    Hebrews 2:14-15 Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.
                    So they took him and killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard.

                      .
                      1. - The devil got a concussion. We all know concussions have lasting effects. Satan never recovered from his. He doesn't have any power over those that choose to follow Christ.

                      Genesis 3:15 - And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

                      2. - The curse of the Law has been abolished. Christians are not bound by the Old Testament ritual and sacrifice system. Jesus fulfilled that with his Death, Burial and Resurrection.

                      2 Corinthians 3:6 - Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

                      3. - Salvation is now extended to the Gentiles. The Body of Christ is born when Paul receives his appointment from Jesus Himself.

                      Read Acts 9:1-31 for the full account.

                      Here are some quotations from Paul that describe the impact of the gospel.

                      Romans 11:11 -I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.

                      Acts 28:28 -Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.

                      This impact was also prophesied -

                      Isaiah 49:6 - And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.

                      4. - Death and sin have been defanged. A way of escape is provided because of the Resurrection.

                      1 Corinthians 15:17 - And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.

                      1 Corinthians 15:55 - O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

                        For me I LOVE that it was the girls to who He showed Himself alive first.

                        Of course the men were locked behind closed doors, as usual it was the women taking care of things, doing the neccesary duties.

                        WOMEN preached the first resurrection sermon...." but they believed them not..." but it is my favourite bible story, how they came worrying about who would roll back the stone....how they ran to tell the brothers trembling with fear and joy.

                          In that moment, all of human history was subsumed in Him, and God declared that He is making all things new in Him. Jesus was the firstfruits, vindicated by the Spirit, and the vision of what was and is to come for all of creation.

                          So, yeah...He makes all the difference.

                            FREEDOM!!!!

                            To all who believe, we are free from the curse of the Law and we can show our love for God freely and without reservation!
                            We are bought and paid for and Yeshua is there to pick us up when we stumble or to carry us when we can not walk.

                              It brought monotheism to the whole world, and Christ as an example spiritual uprightness and self-sacrifice.
                              John 1:1-2 εν αρχη ην ο λογος At the beginning, it was a word; και ο λογος ην προς ο θεος and a word, it was unto a God; και θεος ην ο λογος and the God, it was.. A word 2 ουτος a-such... 2 ην εν αρχη προς ο θεος ... it was at the beginning unto a God.

                              Yahweh is a word of God, not just Christ!
