Although I prefer using Resurrection Sunday
rather than Easter, I realize there are thousands
of Christians who still use the term, just as we still
use the names of months and days of the week
knowing their origin. When I say Easter, I’m referring
to the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead…
that’s the only Easter I know and celebrate…not any
pagan holiday…and I’m sure most Christians think this
way. God knows our hearts.
“No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts
it under a bed. Instead, he puts it on a stand,
so that those who come in can see the light.
For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed,
and nothing concealed that will not be known
or brought out into the open” (Luke 8:16-17).
The man without the Spirit does not accept
the things that come from the Spirit of God,
for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot
understand them, because they are spiritually
discerned (1 Corinthians 2:14)
May I never boast except in the cross of our
Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been
crucified to me, and I to the world (Galatians 6:14)
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ
laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay
down our lives for our brothers (1 John 3:16).
