EASTER Celebration: Three Things You Must Do

April 16, 2017 / Alonge Michael / On The Spot / 1 Comment »

When we think of Easter, the first thing that comes to mind is the holiday and as for our children, they are Easter eggs. Let me point out here that Easter has nothing to do with holiday or eggs. It is all about the Life, Death and the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. We should realise also that without Christ there is no Easter. Christ came to the world and took away all our sins so we should be freed from sins because of His death.

God has played his own by sending his only begotten son (John 3:16) to save us. Likewise Christ has played his own part by agreeing to come into the world and actually died for us. The Bible says in Luke 18:33 that “And they shall scourge him, and put him to death and the third day he shall rise again” . It is evident that Christ has risen.  Glory be to God in the highest. .. Hallelluyah!!!

Now as good Christians, we need to play our own part in the resurrection process.

Firstly Christ taught His disciplines to focus in God and heavenly things as they are more rewarding as the crown of glory awaits them. Matthew 16:25 says “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it, and but whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it”.

Secondly, Christ taught us to love one another in John 13:34 that “A new commandment.  I give unto you, “That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another “. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if you love one another.  We must first of all love God and also love our fellow man/women so that we can be regarded as the children of the Most High.

Thirdly, Christ has taught us to forgive in Matthew 18:21-22 “Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Till seven times?  Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, until seven times but until seventy times seven”.

Christ demonstrated forgiveness on the cross in Luke 23:34 when He said, “Father , forgive them ;for they know not what they do “. We must practice forgiveness on a regular basis so that we can be like Jesus Christ.

If we can try and practice the three points mentioned above our lives will be transformed for better. May the Lord of resurrection change our better to best in Jesus name! Amen

So, when God pushes you to the edge, trust Him fully, because only two things can happen. Either He will catch you when you fall or he will teach you how to fly.

HAPPY EASTER brethren!
