Easter is coming up… people are getting excited about a long Easter weekend end, chocolate bunnies, Easter eggs, some even about going to church for Easter breakfast, …
However … what is Easter about? What difference can I, can YOU make … this Easter.
On Good Friday, we as Christians remember the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, God’s son. It was the darkest day of mankind, when Jesus became sin, for us to be righteous (2.Corinthians 5:21) before God; when Jesus died, for our transgressions and iniquities. When He looked into the faces of those that hated Him to still love them and ask God to forgive them and us and YOU (Luke 23:34), and let Him pay the price of death for it.
On Easter, we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Who after being dead for 3 days (1.Corinthians 15:4), rose from the dead and lives ever since. After the remembrance of the darkest moment and greatest moment of love that God has for us, we now celebrate God’s eternal victory over Satan. It is a day of celebration of deliverance and redemption; a celebration of grace and mercy from God.
So this Easter…why not try something different than you did before?
Choose to spread the Gospel… go with the trend and get some chocolates – small ones in wrapping similar to a sweet – then go to http://www.fathersloveletter.com/ and print the letter in languages most spoken where you come from. Print the letter on beautiful paper, fold the paper nicely, or roll it with a ribbon around it and attach the chocolate.
Prepare yourself a whole stack of it. Gather some friends… go out to the streets and distribute them, wishing the people a happy and blessed Easter.
You will encounter smiles, surprised and thankful faces… people are barely reluctant to receive gifts on Easter, so the time is ideal. And what they will hold in their hands is a love letter from God to them.
This Easter, chose to save a life by spreading the truth, which has saved yours. Jesus Christ, Son of God, Lord and Saviour, Redeemer… has risen and lives! Praise God!
