10 religious Happy Easter quotes
What do we say on Easter? Anyone who is a devout Christian would enjoy reading these Happy Easter religious quotes:
- If man had his way, the plan of redemption would be endless and bloody conflict. In reality, salvation was bought not by Jesus' fist, but by His nail-pierced hands; not by muscle but by love; not by vengeance but by forgiveness; not by force but by sacrifice. Jesus Christ our Lord surrendered in order that He might win; He destroyed His enemies by dying for them and conquered death by allowing death to conquer Him – A.W. Tozer
- As you reflect on the sacrifice that Jesus made for us, I want you to remember his abundant blessings more than you remember the pitfalls that come with being a believer. I want you to be energized by the knowledge that just as he rose from the dead, he will reignite your spirit and give you the strength to carry on.
- Remember Jesus of Nazareth, staggering on broken feet out of the tomb toward the Resurrection, bearing on his body the proud insignia of the defeat which is victory, the magnificent defeat of the human soul at the hands of God - Frederick Buechner
- Each time my faith falters, you have always been there to encourage me. During this time when we reflect on the trials and tribulations that the Messiah went through, I would like to thank you for holding my hand. I wish you a happy holiday, with God’s love and blessings.
- Jesus was born into an existence that I cannot fathom, and He died a death of the very same sort. And therefore, what insanity causes me to presume His inability to understand the difficulties of my existence when His wildly eclipsed mine, and why do I doubt His adequacy to engage the death within me when He died a death for me? - Craig D. Lounsbrough
- How special are we that Jesus laid down his life for us? We are so lucky to be the chosen ones. As you celebrate this holiday, I want to wish you and your family a lot of love and good cheer.
- Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song. - Pope John Paul II
- This holiday, I pray that you experience renewal in your life. Just as Jesus rose from the dead and made everything new again, I pray that everything in your life gets reenergized. May you experience new horizons and have more strength for each day.
- The gifts of the Master are these: freedom, life, hope, new direction, transformation, and intimacy with God. If the cross was the end of the story, we would have no hope. But the cross isn't the end. Jesus didn't escape from death; he conquered it and opened the way to heaven for all who will dare to believe. The truth of this moment, if we let it sweep over us, is stunning. It means Jesus really is who he claimed to be, we are really as lost as he said we are, and he really is the only way for us to intimately and spiritually connect with God again. - Steven James
- Jesus laid down his life, so that yours may prosper. As we celebrate this holiday, I wish you and your family boundless prosperity. May all your dreams come true and all your hustles pay off.

- And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power. – 1 Corinthians 6:14
- If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. – Romans 10:9
- For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. – Thessalonians 4:14
