Easter by Emberblue Easter by Emberblue
This is the final version of . The other one was for advertising a church service. This one is just for fun. :) I'm so excited that Easter is almost here. It is my favorite holiday, even more than Christmas. In my opinion Easter celebrates the most critical event that ever happened in history. God/Jesus was born as a human (Christmas) and died for our sins on the cross (Good Friday) and rose from the dead (Easter Sunday). If Jesus didn't rise from the dead then our Christian faith is in vain. If He lived a perfect life and died...and stayed dead, then we have no hope of salvation or that the things He said were true. But because He DID rise from the dead, we can trust that He does have the power to forgive our sins and one day we will live with Him in heaven. The power that rose Jesus from the grave is the same power that works in us. :heart:

The bottom says "I am He who lives and was dead and behold I am alive forevermore" from Revelation 1:18


This is also the theme for a contest going on at :iconchristians: here: [link] Only members can participate. So if you are a member I want to encourage you to exercise those creative muscles and submit something to the Easter contest. :aww: (I'm not entering the contest because I'm an administrator.)

He is risen! :sun:

Fantastic design! The darkness and light are a wonderful symbolism for the transition Good Friday and Easter Sunday. It's like the sun rising as the Son rises. God bless you!

This is gorgeous and I totally agree -- Easter is far more important than Christmas, and I think I love it as a holiday better too! Inspirational work here, my friend. I love the verse!

I notice you used the same cool/warm color juxtaposition as your “Tree of Life” painting. I think that’s a great way to tie in the two subjects thematically for people who get to see them both.

Cool, thanks for pointing that out. I didn't even notice, haha! They are even on the same sides...the cool on the left and the warm on the right. Maybe I should do a series ;) I really like how orange and blue work together.

Maybe this can by my signature style. ;) lol!

Thanks!

That is such a strong quote and poster, I will go on a mission trip in two weeks and this has inspired me to emphasize this particular matter with my teammates.
