NOT JUST EASTER
ďAnd the angel answered and
said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was
crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said, Come, see the
place where the Lord lay.Ē
Easter will be here in two days and we will be getting together with our
families and loved ones to celebrate the holiday. The same thing
happens when Christmas and Thanksgiving arrive, we get together for the
holidays. The sad part of it is, sometimes that is the only time we
see our families, loved ones, and friends during the entire year.
Holidays are wonderful for us. They bring out the good inside of us
and we want to do things for others. We need to realize that these
good feelings and giving we have for others should be in our daily lives.
Easter is the Celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus. If Jesus
truly lives inside of us, then we need to be celebrating every day.
We need to let the Joy of Jesus and the Compassion of Jesus shine through
us every day of the year.
Some people only go to church on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter and
they think that is enough. What they donít realize is that it hurts
the Heart of Jesus when they only recognize Him three times out of the
I urge you to let the Joy of Jesusí Resurrection arise in your heart every
day so that others will know that they too can have the Joy that only
Jesus can give a person.
