Easter and the Resurrection 4 - 14 - 14
For cetnturuies the resurrection of Christ has been commemorated on Easter Sunday. It is true that Christ Rose from the dead near the time of Easter. Around the same time of the year, pagan people held spring festivals that involved eggs and rabbits.
When these people were converted to Catholicism, the meaning of eggs and rabbits was "Christianized", and became associated with Eaater. Today many people see "Easter" as mainly a time for candy, colored eggs and new clothes.
Stores across the country stock up with sweets and trinkets. Some churches hold Easter egg hunts, thus promoting Easter eggs and bunnies. From a very young age many children are taught to focus on these things instead of on Jesus Christ death and resurrection.
How it must grieve the heart of God that the significance of the resurrection is so distorteal Jesus Christ left the glories of Heaven, lived among sinful men on Earth, and died a cruel death for our sins.
He did all this for us, yet many people seem to forget him on the very day that supposedly commemorates his resurrection. They give more honor to pagan practices than to Jesus Christ himself.
how can we do that after Christ did so much for us?
Christ asks us to reject the ways of the world and draw nigh to him.
"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: of any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
This Easter, let us remember Christ's ransom and resurrection, not the rites of the heathen.
If we faithfully serve him we can look forward to being in his very presence forever.
