(April 01, 2021) Honouring the memory of the late missionary statesman Dr George Forbes, we run one of his Easter blogs, a reminder that the real message of Easter is a precious goldmine treasure:
Easter is an annual holiday celebrated by many millions around the world.
- For devout followers of Christ it is a highlight of the year; a time to give thanks to God for his great gift of the Saviour.
- For many others it may be the one-day they attend or think about attending a church, because it seems the right thing to do. They hope it might help when the day of accounting comes.
- For a vast number of people it has no meaning… so they simply treat this time as a holiday break from normal routines.
Easter’s great truth
Millions of Christians commemorate the crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus, especially at Easter, though most also celebrate the great victory of Calvary every time they take communion. Many Christians say that they regard Easter as the most important celebration of the year.
