Easter is Almost Here!!

Holy Week is here, and Easter is almost upon us. Hallelujah! “Christ is risen! He is risen, indeed.”

How surprised they must have been on the first Easter Sunday morning when the women found the tomb open. The Resurrection of Jesus changed the world. For followers of Jesus, life would never be the same.

The Resurrection of Christ is God’s way of announcing that if we believe, our lives can be eternal. As we think through the Last Supper on Maundy Thursday and mourn for Jesus on Good Friday, we then rejoice with his Resurrection on Easter. Holy Week is full of ups and downs, just like our everyday lives.

We should be comforted in the thought that Jesus not only died for our sins, but he remains with us throughout our earthly life. We can allow Easter to remind us to reset. As spring growth begins to awaken, we should do the same. Live our lives to the fullest, and be kind to everyone around us. Live in the spirit of Jesus.

Happy Easter!
