I saw a quote recently…it said something like “this holiday is not about a bunny…it’s about a lamb”.
It’s not Easter. It’s not about eggs and frilly dresses and shoes (although I’m always here for a frilly dress and shoes) and suits. It’s not about ham (a derivative of bacon…yum) or cobbler or homemade rolls.
It’s Resurrection Sunday! Think about the sacrifice…and sacrifice is too flimsy a word…but think about the sacrifice that was made. Jesus died…on a cross…so that we may live! Don’t get into the frivolousness of today. Stay reverent of the occasion. He was crucified. Buried. And on the third day, HE GOT UP! That’s Victory!!
As cute as our babies will be today, as fluffy as the speeches may be…it means nothing if we don’t teach them what today truly represents.
The same resurrecting power that gave Jesus victory over death, is the same power we have access to today. It gives us victory over temptation, circumstances, sadness…WE HAVE VICTORY!
If God said it, then keep believing for it! It’s coming, sis. It’s coming. Thank God in advance for it. Your Sunday is coming!!
