Easter is here again and with it comes the hot-cross buns, the Easter bunny, the delicious chocolate eggs in all shapes and sizes, the mega sales to tempt any credit-card carrying buyer and the coveted long week-end holiday. But in the midst of the rush, what does it all really mean?
For the Christian church, Easter is a time to reflect upon the events of that Passover week when Jesus Christ suffered a cruel death for our sins but rose triumphant from the grave three days later. Easter is about Jesus Christ.
Jesus came to bring us good news. There is an answer to our problems and a way to be at peace with God.
Jesus came to bring us life. We can experience a higher quality of life filled with purpose and meaning by living for others rather than ourselves.
Jesus came to bring us hope. There is a future and comfort even in the midst of suffering and pain.
Good news, life and hope can be yours as you turn to God, believe in Jesus Christ, and accept the free gift of his love. May this Easter be a time when you reflect on what Jesus Christ has done for you!
