He is risen! He is risen, indeed!
I've been noticing lots of commentary on my internet social sites, regarding Easter. Bunnies and eggs...goddesses and idols...pagan religions...sex and fertility. Lot's of hub bub. Lot's of negativity.
For Christians, Easter is the holiest of days. It seems to bring out the worst in some observers and all of the jabber can be quite confusing. It deflects attention away from what Easter really is...the day that Christians celebrate Jesus defeating death and rising from the grave.
A miracle with many eye witnesses.
A miracle meant to be remembered.
Ancient Babylonians don't matter. Gods and goddesses, pagan idols, spring festivals...don't matter. Eggs and chicks, bunnies, baskets and hats...don't matter. What does matter is what Easter means today. The focus remains on the sacrifice that Christ made to show us how to live, how much God cares for us...and that we too, will rise.
Blessed Easter to you, friends! We have cause to celebrate!
