So, in case you’ve been hiding in a hole, Easter is this Sunday. It’s the one Sunday of the year where there will be more cars in church parking lots than the Wal-Mart parking lot. It’s the day that Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s a special day. As a pastor, it’s one day that I look forward to most. Not because of new Easter clothes and not because of Easter egg hunts. I most look forward to Easter because we celebrate that Jesus is Alive!
This Sunday there will be pastors from all styles, personalities, and denominations preaching on the resurrection. They may use different passages of Scripture and different approaches, but the main message will be the same: Jesus is Alive!
The #1 thing you need to know about Easter is that you need Easter. You and I need Easter because we desperately need a risen Savior. We need a Savior who has taken the curse of sin, conquered the grave, and offers us abundant LIFE! You and I need Easter because only Jesus can restore our broken relationship with God.
I’m so thankful for the empty tomb. I’m thankful for a Savior who lives. I’m thankful for Easter!
