Easter Celebrations 

March 26, 2016

Today many children will be looking forward to tomorrow when they will celebrate Easter with egg hunts, baskets filled with candy, the Easter bunny and maybe a day that  they will be with family and friends. Something is missing.

The most important reason why all these things are in their lives: the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The focus should be on Him. Make sure that the true meaning does not get lost in all the preparations and plans.

My favorite memory of Easter is my grandmother taking me to a sunrise service outside looking over a beautiful view from on top of a hill. Then we would go to breakfast and on to church where the hymns about Jesus would be sung and the resurrection story would be told.

We serve a risen Savior, let us make sure He is first in our celebration on Easter Sunday.

Matthew 28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
