Easter festivity is a season that the Christian communities around the whole world use to remember the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the savior of the world.
The original plan of God creating man was for man to dwell in eternity, but because of sin, that eternity privilege was taken away, so sin separated man from God. And as a matter of fact, God love for humanity is unchangeable so He looked forward to bring man back to Himself. There was no option for God, than to send His only begotten Son Christ Jesus to come to the world and die in other to bring man back Himself (God).
So in John 3:16, the bible tell us that “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. So your duty is to believe in Christ Jesus and that eternity privilege that was taken away from you long ago, you will have it again: “that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life”
For we all know and believe by Scriptures that our Lord Jesus even predicted His death and resurrection. “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death, and deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock and to scourge and to crucify. And the third day He will rise again.” Matt 20:18-19
So as believers and followers of Christ Jesus, we know at a certain point in time, we should mark this day as a day to remember the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. It’s also a time to renew our lives with Christ Jesus and know that every part of life that is not pleasing God should die and resurrect with a new life as Christ die and resurrect in this Easter season.
But what do we really see and hear in Easter season, a lot of people have really forgotten the relevance of Easter. They see it’s a time for enjoyment in the name of drinking alcohol, sleeping with girls and doing all sort of things that doesn’t constitute to the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus. Easter is not a time for foolishness.
I know there are lot of programs, events, and shows going on in part of Ghana and around the world all in the name of promoting the works on the devil, there is one thing I want you to know as a believer or man born of a man or a woman, that you should know the relevance of Easter. Don’t join the company of the ungodly .
Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:1-2
Beloved, let this Easter season bring you joy and all the good things that Christ Jesus came up when He resurrected. May the spirit of God help you to know the relevance of this and every Easter.
