Easter is a-comin’! The Easter Bunny, Easter Baskets, colored eggs, chocolate, jelly beans and peeps. Do any of you ladies still wear an Easter Bonnet for this special day? What a celebration!
But we know it’s not all about the candy and decorations. Something really happened to give us good reason to celebrate. Jesus died on the cross and paid the penalty for our sins. And then on that first Easter morning, he rose from the dead, conquering the power of death so that we could have eternal life with God in heaven. Plenty to celebrate!
This Sunday I will be launching a 5-week series called The Easter Challenge. It touches on what really happened and why we Christians should believe what we do. I begin with “The Evidence of the Resurrection.” It isn’t just a belief in a spiritual concept, but there is evidence- physically, emotionally AND spiritually, that it really did happen just like the Bible says. Easter isn’t just about the candy and a gift-bearing bunny. God really changed the world and we get to experience it.
Tune in on Sunday and hear about the Evidence that Jesus really did rise from the dead. The tomb is empty. He lives! WE LIVE!
