Happy Easter Sunday, friends! Today we celebrate that Jesus is alive! Our Easter, as I’m sure yours too, is very different this year.
As I was thinking about our Easter celebration, I was reminded of Christmas and the classic cartoon, How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
We all know the story, the Grinch hated Christmas, and he thought by taking away the gifts, the food, and all the decorations that he could stop Christmas. But of course, that didn’t happen.
You see, it wasn’t about the food and the presents…..Christmas still came to Whoville.
This Easter, most of us will not be dressing up and heading to church. There will be no new dresses, no little girls in their cute bonnets, or little boys in ties.
While that is fun and we love seeing all the pretty spring outfits, that is not Easter!
Because of COVID-19, we will not be gathering in a church building. That doesn’t mean we will not celebrate Easter. COVID-19 can not stop our celebration of Jesus and what He did for us on the cross.
Easter is not about a church building; Easter is about the ONE who died for our sins, and three days later, He rose from the grave.
Take away all the Easter dresses, and bonnets, take away our ability to gather in the church building…..we will still celebrate because Jesus is alive!
“He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.” 1 Cor. 15:4
HALLELUIAH! HE IS RISEN AND HE IS OUR LIVING HOPE!
Have a blessed day!
