Just in case we forget

Easter is NOT about:

-how many people attend your church service
-what your Easter clothes look like
-how fancy of a hat you can find
-what songs we sing
-the lights/graphics/tech arts creativity
-the special guest artists
-the egg hunt
-what you'll have for Easter lunch
-a person dressed up as a dang bunny, which honestly, I find completely creepy
-how well the pastor speaks


Easter IS about this:

An empty tomb.

The fact that death had no hold on Jesus and the grave couldn't keep Him down.

It's about the fact that God sent HIS SON to Earth to live among His people. A perfect life. A sinless life. All for one reason. To go to the cross in our place. To bear our sins. He was beaten, whipped, and crucified. Because someone had to pay the price. We, as sinful people, would never be able to pay our debt of sin. But a perfect Son could. He came and took our place. He made a way for us to have access to the Father. And while He died on the cross for our sin, He did not remain dead. He rose from the grave after 3 days. So no, Easter is NOT about the things listed above. It's about an empty tomb. And a Savior who loved us enough to take our place.
