The season of Easter is a precious one for us as Christians. It is a time of renewal, revival and resurrection. In this season how important it is to lay it all at the cross and surrender it all. I mean how much more love does God have for His children, to send His only son? One thing that always and growingly has been perturbing my spirit is the attention the world pays to things that truly distract us from the true essence of resurrection Sunday. Are easter eggs and bunnies the true focus of easter or is it focusing on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ? More and more as Christians our spirits must be sharpened to understand what is happening in the world. So much lukewarmness has creeped into the hearts of. God’s children and the church has fallen asleep but there is a remnant that has awakened in this season. If we only knew the magnitude of what God did for us through Jesus we would sit up and plug in deeper.
The true essence of easter Sunday as believers is for us to understand the knowledge of who God is and why the resurrection power is so important for us. Apostle Paul teaches us in Philippians 3:10-11, He says I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.
This is it! Nothing Is more important during the Easter season than this. Even the disciples of Christ did not fully understand this power of his resurrection, but how gracious Christ was to leave our Great Helper the Holy Spirit to teach us. In Romans 8:11 it says "And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you".
If this easter thing is new to you, I pray you welcome Jesus into your life and ask him to take over every part of yourself. Surrender at His feet today and welcome Him into your life. Tell Him you can do nothing without Him.
In this easter season may we ponder in our quiet time, and become reconciled in our faith in Jesus and may the Spirit of God reveal deeper things to us about the power of His resurrection- renewal, revival and Victory!
Have a blessed Easter!
