Easter Weekend

Filed under: Uncategorized — Steve Knaus @ 11:15 pm

Easter Weekend has come, bringing lots of discussions….

  • Day off of school (Good Friday off)
  • Earth Day on Saturday (See a great post here)
  • Commercial Trappings (Easter Bunny, Sugar, Easter Baskets, More Sugar, etc.)
  • Church Services (make sure to wear something nice!)
  • Spring Weather

But what is the big deal about Easter? 

We don’t worship a dead savior.

We were enemies with God.

Jesus bought us forgiveness with his life.

But he is not dead.  He is alive again!

We don’t worship a dead savior.

Is this news?

Is this new news?  Is this old news?

How does it change your life?

How does it change your weekend?

What if there was no holiday?  How about next weekend?

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.
– 1 Corinthians 15:17-21

Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.
– 1 Corinthians 15:49

I want share again a post from last year: He’s Alive!

Have a wonderful Easter!
