Easter: Now What

The Christian calendar has two really big days on it, Easter and Christmas.  And, of course, these are special days in the history of Christianity.  Christmas represents the birth of Jesus (no, I’m not going to get into the argument about whether the day is correct).  As Philippians tells us, Jesus left the splendors of heaven and voluntarily came to earth as a man.  He was born a baby.  Without that birth, we would not have a Savior.  Then, Easter represents the resurrection.  Jesus died around the Passover of the year of his crucifixion.  On the following Sunday, He rose from the grave and lives today as a Risen Savior who is alive and seated at the right hand of God the Father.  Without either of these events, you and I would be without hope.  But, thanks be to God that He designed a plan that makes it possible for each of us to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior so that we can spend eternity with Him.  Will you be revived now as Easter goes beyond us?  Or, will you return to a mundane Christian walk, one without excitement or joy? Let’s be committed and surrender to our Lord.  bob
