I can’t believe it’s that time again, Easter! As a Christian, it’s one of the most important days of the year for me.
Our church usually hosts a Passion Play every year. And although we didn’t have one this year during the weeks leading up to Easter I have been running the events of what happened over 2000 years ago in my mind.
Last year I wrote this post about dying for someone you don’t even know. I can’t imagine it. I can’t imagine how many people thought Jesus was crazy. But when you think about it literally instead of like a folk tale it starts to get real. You know those people that stand up for what they believe in and get killed? That’s what Jesus did. And not only did he do it because He believed, He did it for us – for people he would never meet. It’s hard for me to wrap my head around that concept because many of us wouldn’t do that.
But enough of that, today we celebrate the fact that Jesus sacrificed His life for us but the tomb couldn’t contain Him! He rose from the dead! That’s even more crazy! It’s a miracle that changed the history of the world!
So Happy Easter to everyone! Remember the reason why we celebrate each year, the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
