Eggs, Bunnies and Baskets

April 11, 2014

If you go into almost any store, grocery, clothing, or drugstore this time of year what you see first is colored plastic eggs, plush bunnies, colorful baskets and spring flowers. Signs may say Happy Easter but nowhere ( except a Christian Bookstore) do you find anything about Jesus and His death, burial and resurrection.
The very reason we have to celebrate Easter is forgotten and it has become a day to be with family, friends with all kinds of activity that has nothing to do with the worship of God.
Have we as Christians become like the retail stores and forgotten the true meaning of Easter?
This coming week let us focus on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.

Hebrews 12:2
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
