Resurrection: The REAL Celebration!
Spring is almost here and many people celebrate the Easter holiday with Easter egg hunts, baskets of candy and tales of the Easter bunny to their children. That is not what this holiday is about.
Call it Easter or Resurrection Sunday, we have a real, amazing and awesome event to celebrate: the sacrificial death and miraculous resurrection of Jesus Christ; Son of God and Savior of mankind! It starts on Good Friday, representing the day Jesus died on the cross, sacrificing Himself for our sins and giving us all access to God’s forgiveness. On Sunday we celebrate Christ’s resurrection, when God raised Jesus from the dead! Jesus died for the remission of our sins and rose again to enjoy everlasting life. His death and resurrection illustrates God’s promise to us who believe in Jesus – that we too will escape death’s sting and enjoy everlasting life!
(1 Corinthians 15:50-58)
Read all about it in Matthew chapters 27-28, Luke chapters 23-24, and John chapters 18-20. Use a New King James (NKJV) or other bible version with contemporary language so that the scriptures are easy to read. If you don’t have a church home, now is the perfect time to find one. At church we can all more fully understand the Bible and all about God. You are welcome to join us here at the FLAVA Church, anytime.
Let’s start a new tradition this spring by teaching our children what Resurrection Sunday is really all about. We will give them a gift that lasts long after dyed eggs and chocolate candies are gone. The celebration of Jesus Christ is the gift that keeps on giving.
Minute Meditations, reflections to help us live our lives with excellence, are posted here each month. Check back for next month's Meditation.
