Easter Thoughts!

Just last week I was privileged to bring a short Easter message to my local Rotary Club. I made it very simple with the question, ‘What does Easter mean to you? Are you in one of three groups?…

Holidaymaker? (Easter has no spiritual significance)
Chocy egg eater? (Recent news flash: Chocolate is actually good for you!)
Spiritually inclined? (Easter is the most important date on the church calender)

Or hopefully all three?

As for me, Easter speaks of…
Sacrifice (our Saviour Jesus Christ’s Calvary sacrifice)
Forgiveness (God’s forgiveness of our rebellion and independence)
Relationship (getting back into meaningful friendship with our creator through Jesus).

I then gave a challenge…
Is there someone you can bless and help this Easter by sacrificing something for him or her (or them for that matter)?
Is there someone you need to forgive this Easter and stop carrying bitterness? (Bitterness, retained anger and unforgiveness are all very dangerous and can lead to sickness and a wasted life).
Is there someone you can start developing a meaningful relationship this Easter over, say, even just a cuppa? (Relationship with God? Try prayer…the word just means to talk. It’s that simple).

Food for thought and words of encouragement!

Have a good rest, have a good week

  3. could you not have a Fourth Category for Easter? for non-practising christians who do realise the significance? I always send cards with a christian motif at Easter and at Christmas I always choose Nativity scene cards. I am waiting for the Christmas Department Store backlash, where the community says: We have had enough retail bullying to purchase gifts worth 100’s of $.I would like to produce and sell small inexpensive gold cardboard boxes with frankincense and myrrh inside for sensible people to give at Christmas. cheers.
