The Glory of
Holy week is one of
the most special and precious times of the year for Christians. We often hear the phrase at Christmas that
"Jesus is the Reason for the Season," however, I believe that Easter
is the time for Christ to be glorified.
This is the time of
year when we recognize the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. People from across the world view this season
differently and celebrate it in various ways.
Some are most concerned about their new "Easter" outfit with
their new bonnet, also known as the famous Easter hat. While others get more excited about Easter
baskets, decorating eggs and planning
Easter egg hunts with chocolate covered bunnies. Then there are those that see it only as the beginning
of Springtime and covet the prettiest lawn or garden in the neighborhood.
What I find ironic is
no matter how we think of or celebrate Easter we can't run from the fact that
all of it was created by Him. Some may
say that I am being very opinionated in my view or expression, but at the end
of the day, I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ and if at no other time,
now is when I can allow my voice to be heard.
Christ claimed victory over the grave with the empty
tomb. "They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they
entered they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus." To me this represents the ultimate
I wish all of you a
blessed Resurrection Day!
