It’s interesting that the world seems to ‘stop’ more for Easter than for Christmas, although the latter is more commercially celebrated.
Recently, in our Facebook Group, I asked “What do you love best about Easter?” These were some of the comments…
Resurrection, I am forever grateful for the cross, but really encouraged by what we receive through Jesus’s resurrection, He is Alive in all His Glory, sitting at the right hand of God and offering His seat to you and me! No other religion or God ever offered their seat to man, only Jesus!!! He is the only way to that seat next to The Father, you have to accept the trade He made available, your life for His, His life was already given for yours❤️❤️❤️Thank you Jesus, I accept 🙌🙌🙌
As hard as it is remembering all that Jesus did and endured for us, just being amazed at His relentless love that never gave up no matter now hard things got or no matter how much he went through just to save only little old me if necessary… blows my mind… it reminds me of a parents love for their children, how no matter how they act sometimes or what the do or how unlovely they behave, it never changes the fact of how much we love them, relentlessly, and would endure anything for them… although what Jesus did was clearly a whole next level!! I also love spending time with my family at Easter…
The world stops to celebrate and generally acknowledge the gospel message. It’s a time for renewed faith or for new faith.
Knowing that Jesus loved me to give his life for me
For me, my faith pivots round the Resurrection. Without it, Jesus was just a wise man and excellent teacher. I personally place far more importance on celebrating Easter (ie the Resurrection of Jesus Christ) than I do any other faith based occasion.
