The Coolest thing about Easter

22 Apr

This past Sunday we celebrated what I believe to be the most holy day of the year for those of us that follow Christ:  EASTER!!  Not because of the Easter Bunny … (He doesn’t even come to see me anymore) Not because of Jelly Beans, which are nature’s perfect food.  (HOWEVER … in spite of my diet, I DID have 8 jelly beans this year.  They tallied 86 calories.  I ate them SLOWLY and enjoyed every bite, even the black one that was in the zip lock I was given!!)

Easter is a time to reconnect with Christ.  Easter is a day in which we all gather in God’s house, and for those of us in the South, a day where everyone AND his brother shows up in the house of God.  And I love it because I know seeds are sown.  It is a day for all of us to come face-to-face with what God is doing around us.  Some will reconnect and their hearts will blaze for Him.  Some will take the seeds that were sown and God will bring those to fruition later.

But, this I KNOW:  The word of God DOES NOT GO OUT AND RETURN VOID.  In Isaiah, God said this about His word:

“So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”   Isaiah 55:11, NIV

God’s word really is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword.  It DOES NOT go out without making an impact.  I believe that with all of my heart!!

That is the coolest thing about Easter to me …  It is about renewal… Revival …  A chance to return.  And God welcomes all back with OPEN ARMS!!  Hope you have a great week!!
