For centuries, Easter has been observed in various ways in different cultures around the world. Millions of people go through the motions of casually celebrating Easter through a secular lens that traces back to pagan practices and novelty products (bunnies, eggs, etc.). Others are perfectly comfortable with a hybrid of worldly traditions capped off with light religious observations.
Easter commemorates exceedingly more than the vast majority of the world can even begin to comprehend. It represents the most indescribable and momentous event in time and eternity – the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. To believers, Easter is not merely another holiday on the calendar. Its significance is deeply rooted in the heart of the Gospel that should resonate at the core of our souls every day. As sinners who have recognized our desperate need for a Savior and placed our faith in Christ’s finished work at Calvary, how could we see this “Good News” as anything short of unspeakably remarkable news!
Our hope and blessed assurance is based solely in this profound and unshakable truth – that the sinless, spotless Lamb of God willingly shed his innocent blood, died for the sins we could never pay for, and rose from the dead on the third day to freely give us life we could never earn.
There are no words in the human vocabulary that can adequately describe the amazing love of Jesus Christ. May our hearts be compelled to worship Him as we consider that “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
And as the Apostle Paul prayed, may we “have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:18-19).
