Observing Easter

On the fifth of this month, we all observed Easter, as did many Christians and others across America.  And a thought came to me as I saw that many people were posting comments and pictures of their Easter celebrations on social media.  I thought that it’s nice to see many people taking time to recognize the wonderful sacrifice that was made on our behalf.  But I also thought, where are all the posts and comments on the other 364 days of the year?  Jesus died for us for more than just one day a year.  As Christians, we should be thanking God and acknowledging his sacrifice every day of the year, not just one.  I think it’s important for us to read the Gospels account of Jesus’ death on that cross and to refresh our memories of the pain and misery that he withstood for us.  We should be paying attention every Sunday when we partake of the memorial meal, to the words that are said during the prayers and the scriptures that are read of his death. 

There is nothing wrong with the holiday of Easter and everyone should observe it.  But we should also be celebrating it every day as Christians and showing others, through the scriptures, of how precious that sacrifice was.  We should also remember, the beliefs behind Easter stem farther than a new tie or dress and hunting colored eggs.  And we should thank God that we are blessed with the opportunity to do those things.
