This is what we did today at our house:
Okay, we don’t have any little kids around any more but we still love to color eggs. We have a bit of a twisted sense of humor as well….
All kidding aside, Easter is a very important holiday for us. Easter is the day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sin. He did for me what I could not do for myself.
But…He did not stay dead, He rose again to prove that sin and death have no power over Him! Because He lives, I live. Because He lives, I have hope for tomorrow and every day after that. And He did this all because He loves me and wants to have a relationship with me. How incredible is that?
He didn’t die only for me, He died for you too.
Want to know more but haven’t been to church in a while? That’s okay. Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than sitting in a garage makes you a car.
Want to try something different? Check out LifeChurch.tv. There are over 40 services each week. You can go in your pjs and eat chocolate bunnies while you watch :). Just look at the upper right hand corner of the page and you will see how long until the next online service starts. You can watch anonymously, join in and chat with others, even have someone pray with/for you.
It’s nontraditional. Jesus was too.
Until next time…. have the most amazing Easter ever!
