Dear brother and sister I have thee most spectacular message to share with you today, I have a message for you that will change your Easter’s to come forever..
We have reached the day that we most looked forward to in the year Easter as a kid this is one of thee most exciting days to come in the year due to our parents introducing a “Easter Bunny” to you, that brings you chocolate Easter eggs , that made you so curious due to you never being able to actually see him. He was a mysterious bunny, he was the bunny that spoiled you rotten and made you have fun with all of your friends on the haunt for all things sweet. We looked forward to it because we had such a feast we had a table of food we had a lot of sweets and we ere not limited to it :P and we all know as a kid that is a dream come true, we had family come together and we had old friends spend the day with you that we had not seen in such long time. I want you all to take a second and think bout this question.. what is Easter, why do we celebrate it? Why is it a holiday to celebrate?
Its the day that our saviour returned, its the day to celebrate Jesus of coarse… But if we think bout it, we have all forgotten, that it is not what Easter is all about for you anymore, if I think bout the last few Easter’s I have had in the last few years, I remember saying, “Its holiday, its finally the long weekend” “The shop will be making lots of money these Eater holidays” “I am getting paid double for working Easter” sound familiar? But my dear brother and sisters Easter should not fade due to you getting double pay, longer weekends, spoilt with chocolates or your business booming with clientele, Easter should be about celebrating our loving Saviour, our Amazing Jesus Christ, Easter is so much more then food, off days, mysterious bunnies, money… Open your eyes!!! Can I get an Amen?
Reminder of what Easter *Good Friday* is celebrated for.. Jesus died on a cross for our sins, He carried our sins on His shoulders (the cross) He bared the pain and suffering for our wrong doings we do daily and what is to come, He loves you so much that He paid the penalty for all of your sins, He had risen from the grave after THREE DAYS, Jesus is the Passover Lamb, through His blood you are protected. We may live from His mercy and grace, His unfailing love, blessings and comforting arms.
We have all sinned and still do, God the Father sent His only Son to satisfy the judgement for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, Now we do not have to offer sacrifices to God for our sins, because Jesus was the ultimate perfect sacrifice for all time!! Jesus is the truth and life. No one comes through the Father but through Him. The time is so near for Him to return once more and this time it’s the final day, let us do right starting now and prepare for the real BIG feast to come!!
Let us make this Easter different from the one’s that we once thought was celebrating, let us educate our kids to the real deal, let us tell them why it is they should be excited about Easter, why it is that we celebrate this very holiday, let us remind ourselves and others why it is that this holiday is the day we throw a feast… Let us spread the joy of the Lord. Let us make Easter what it really should be about.. the of honoring and recognizing Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead, and His glorious promises of eternal life for all who believe in Him.
I know that if this message has filled your heart the way it has filled mine today you WILL have a lot more joy, love, excitement, passion, bubbliness and burning fire inside your heart and soul today for Easter *Good Friday* shall never be the same again!!! Rejoice in His Name!!
God bless your Good Friday celebration my brothers and sisters J
