Everday is Easter

A lot of emphasis is put on Easter, though to be honest, it's lost its importance to me in recent years.

"Why?" you ask in appalled wonder.

Don't get me wrong, it's nice that society takes this time to commemorate our Saviour's death, burial, and resurrection (emphasis on the resurrection), many people take a somber moment to reflect, they may even go to church, but as Christians, aren't we supposed to celebrate Easter everyday?

The things some may dwell on for an hour one Sunday in April, we need to dwell on each new morning. That one event is what makes Christianity different from any other religion in the world. We don't have to "do" anything to earn our way to heaven, it's a gift from God. All we have to do is receive it. Christianty isn't about us trying to reach God, it's about God trying to reach us.

If you've never accepted God's precious gift of eternal life, I invite you to do so today. You don't have to know all the answers. Simply acknowledge Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, believe in His death, burial, and resurrection, and ask Him into your life. Then you, too, can celebrate Easter every day.

  1. Mindy,

    You're right. Exactly right. And we all need to be reminded of this. Thanks.

  2. You're right. We should be grateful for God's grace every single day!

    I do have to say that one of my favorite hymns, though, is Christ the Lord is Risen Today. I love to sing that on Easter Sunday morning!

  3. Thank you for presenting to our readers the opportunity of accepting Christ. He is the reason we write, we met, we live, we have eternal life, and we choose to serve through our writing.
