Tomorrow, April 5, 2015 is the day we celebrate and commemorate Easter, the day that Christians around the world recognize as the day Christ Jesus was crucified. Many everywhere participate in religious rituals meant to symbolize retracing the steps of Jesus. For many it has a strong spiritual impact and for still others, it is the obligatory ritual necessary to prove their faith in Jesus.
Many other Christians though recognize Easter not just for the pain Jesus endured on the Cross and the trials preceding the way to the Cross, but for the payment ultimately due for mankind’s inherent sinfulness brought about by Adam and Eve’s disobedience to our Heavenly Father.
Paul stated this in 1Corinthians 15 verse 22, “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.” Then continuing in verse 45-47, “And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Lord from heaven.”
I ask all my brothers and sisters in the Lord, no matter your denomination or “title” that when you remember the Crucifixion tomorrow, whether at a sunrise service or during your Church’s service or for those at home celebrating with prayer and meditation that you don’t just dwell on the Crucifixion but also that this symbolizes Christ’s promise to rise, to redeem, and to return to ALL His children!!! What a glorious day of celebration to know that the debt we could never repay is and was paid for us, free of charge, with Love Unconditional for each and everyone who is willing to just reach out their hearts and spirits to accept the free gift!!!
John 3:16-18, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
Believe and thereby PLEASE God, our Heavenly Father!!! God bless ALL my family and friends, brothers and sisters this great Easter weekend!
