Easter Ritual… and Reality

The colored plastic egg and hollow chocolate Easter bunny, have no meaning to the true Easter.

Over two thousand years ago, a man died, was buried and rose from his tomb. That man was Jesus, the Son of God. For this reason, we celebrate Easter… the fact that a dead man came back to life… the fact that He offers same to each of us this COVID-19 Season. Easter means that hope is stronger than despair… love is stronger than death.

Every 3.8 seconds a child dies from hunger somewhere in the world. That’s over 22,700 children will die on this Easter! What do you say to a hopeless mother holding her dead child this Easter? We all can give HOPE and save a life.

There is hope for a grieving mother and her dead child… There is hope for those of us who lost a loved one to COVID-19. It’s called the Resurrection. As Jesus said, “Because I live, you also will live” John 14:19.

Jesus celebrated the Passover on Thursday and He died, was buried on Friday, and rested in the tomb on Sabbath, and was raised on Sunday.

We wish our Jewish friends, a Blessed Passover… and our Christian friends, a Blessed Easter.
“Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world.” John 1:29
