As Christians throughout the world having celebrated Easter on April 24th in a number of ways, it might be good to reflect on the sole reason for our happiness and joy on Easter Sunday. While Easter brings egg hunts and chocolate bunnies for the children (and for some adults), oftentimes we forget the real reason for celebrating this very special day. The celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ should be on our minds and in our hearts on every Easter Sunday.
Putting things in perspective, no event in history has had a greater impact on the world than has the resurrection of Jesus Christ. On Easter Sunday, the Church declares the greatest of all good news and that is that Jesus Christ has risen. As my good friend and pastor Walter Albritton pointed out in a recent Easter sermon, the resurrection gives us hope that the grave is not the end of life for us.
As we reflect on the meaning of the resurrection, all of us should read the account of Jesus being raised from the dead by God, His Father, in each of the four Gospels. It’s important to remember that had Jesus not been raised from the dead, as predicted in the Old Testament, and as told by Jesus to His apostles, there would be little of real value to our Christian faith. If one doesn’t believe that Jesus was in fact raised from the dead, there is little else in the Christian faith that makes any sense. As for me and my house, we believe in the Virgin Birth, the death and the Resurrection of Jesus, as well as the Life Eternal that is guaranteed to all believers. My prayer is that all people everywhere will come to have the same belief.
