Don't you think it's time the people of this world think long and hard on Easter? I want them to know that they are loved as well. You know how sin is simply falling short, but God took care all that for all of us at skull hill. He cared and still does. Calvary was the place where the lights went out.. for a time on good Friday.. which didn't seem good for Jesus, but it was for people. It was the place where God addressed all that made people sad inside.
Yes, Calvary is the place where God said to you, to me, and to the whole world I love you this much.. as He stretched out his arms as wide as possible!!!
Fortunately God has left us here to pray, to LIVE and to minister ..with His Resurrection power.. to many needy people.. just pointing them to Christ. Not to some religious leaders or to a denomination to to a religion.
That's what Easter is all about, people without the God's good Solution who are needing answers.. coming Him n finding His Solution. Jesus, the Word of God is His Answer.. no matter what the problem or question or need is. He was dead but is alive today. He's not stuck dead on a tree at skull hill or all cold and buried away in a hole. No more.
We've seen it.. His grave is indeed empty. And we have over 500 eyewitnesses of Christ alive.. physically resurrected! It was to that each of us sinners (me included) could come into a personal relationship with God. Repent and believe, dead inside to alive.. simple as that.
People around you and me are waiting to be invited to Christ this Easter. Yes, they're waiting to be invited and perhaps to be picked up to go to a church that's alive cuz there's is one Easter Message they really need to hear. They are waiting for love.
He calls us to shine brightly with His Gospel during such a time as this. It's no time for us to stumble in the dark, or fall down, or quit, or stay down all discouraged inside. Why do I say this? Well, because even though so much is broken around us today, we as His Church still haven't arrived at the end of the story. There's a good ending ahead. We want none to miss out.
That's why we want to make the most of each year, each day, and each moment while we are here. Our time is short. You believer, are called to biblically witness with your life, deeds, attitude and words ..of Christ and His Easter love. You don't need a special gift other than that of salvation for that. Calvary's Cross wasn't for nothin' - He said go.
"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
How much better a place would this world be if we did? Those who call themselves Christian leaders and believers might could, oughta (that's Texan - might should), really needta be the first to let the Bible do that in their lives. (Three fingers pointin' back at me here). Easter is as good a time as any to start. To have a new beginning.
Things go better when Jesus is in your heart and Lord of your direction. The Bible says, "Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves." Jam. 1:22. Non-doers who hear, resist and impede God's work will be judged and we don't want that for anyone.
