Well, we are back in the Easter season. We are reminded of the resurrection of Jesus, warm weather (waiting), bunnies and baskets (still not sure how that fits), and this year my daughter,s birthday.
When she was in first grade, her birthday fell on Easter Sunday and she was so excited. Her first grade teacher was made aware of this event very loudly and very often, or so I’m told. My daughter was so overwhelmed that her birthday was on Jesus’ Born Again Day. We
celebrated Easter Sunday with family and friends and of course took treats for
her Sunday school class.
Now, this year her birthday is once again on Easter Sunday. She is in the 12th grade and hopefully will graduate… I’ve yet to see a report card! But, she is still filled with that same excitement. We will, yet again, celebrate with family and friends and take treats to her Sunday school class (It’s hard to break traditions).
Through all of this, I started thinking about the crucifixion and resurrection of our Savior. We should be this excited about Jesus rising from the dead every day. Our faith is based on
that promise of us receiving eternal life with Him. So celebrate Jesus! Give new devotional books, Bibles, share your testimony or favorite verse with someone (all of these fit nicely into Easter baskets). Share a Gift With a Purpose - always good gifts for anytime or occasion,(shameless plug for tab on website).
As Christians we should be thankful and full of praise for Jesus. Easter is a great time to renew that commitment and excitement for Christ (Birthday on Easter not required). Our web
site is all about sharing life together. What an awesome place this would be if we all started sharing the Good News with others.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes
in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16. Our entire gospel is summed up in this familiar verse. Do we believe it? If we do, what an incredible reason to celebrate, no matter what time of year!
