I remember getting all dressed up in my new dress and Easter bonnet for church service on Easter Sunday. My Mother and Father would be dressed up in fine attire also.
Easter is about new life and new beginnings. Jesus gave us ever lasting life when he died on the cross for all of our sins and rose again on the third day. We are forgiven for our sins and our souls will live on in life everlasting with our heavenly Father.
Christ died for our sins so that we may live on even after death. I think of the great sacrifice and the suffering that Jesus went through when he died on the cross for all of our sins. Man has no greater love for a friend then to lay down his life for him. We are truly blessed each and everyday of our lives to have such a true friend and forgiving Savior that he was willing to lay down his life for us so that we may live again.
Easter is a day of renewal and redemption and new beginnings. Spring brings new life into the world. Plants are planted and trees blossom and later bare fruit and animals give birth to the next generation. Spring springs forward with life eternal.
When you take communion in church think about all that communion stands for and what it represents in your life and the lives of others. Remember the great love that Jesus has for all of his followers or flock.
Renew you relationship with God everyday. Be good and kind and forgiving. Bring joy, love, peace, and hope into peoples lives. Reach out to people and take time to truly listen to them and you will learn a lot from them. Try to make a positive difference in peoples lives. Uplift people and show them that you truly love them and care about them. Be genuine and forth coming and honest and love your fellow man.
Matthew 26 : 17 – 20
Now the first day of the first of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover ?
And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples,
And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.
Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.
