On this Easter weekend, it is important to remember why we celebrate.  It is not about the Bunnies, eggs or spring.  No, quite simply, it is because while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8) If we would only allow the scope of this amazing sacrifice to grab us, we would not spend our days sad and anxious.  Instead, we would be sharing the message of the gospel to all who need to hear it.

 Calvary crossOur culture would love to eradicate this holiday—much like the attempt to eradicate Thanksgiving. Truth is, we should be celebrating the resurrection with a passion like none other.  The very thought that God became flesh and died.  Then, he rose from the dead breaking death’s chains on himself and all that would believe.  Ladies and gentlemen, that is something to celebrate!!! Join me, this weekend in a rip-roaring festival of humility and thanksgiving—knowing we, his chosen, will spend eternity in God’s presence—covered in his love and devotion!

 Happy Easter, and God Bless You

 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas,[b] and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.
