CANDY IS DANDY BUT THERE IS MORE TO EASTER

"He is not here for He has risen" Matthew 28:6  

   Edward Proffitt, Th.D.


 I can still remember as a child getting up early on Easter morning to find an Easter bunny nest of goodies and sweets. I remember the colored eggs and all the fanfare of finding Easter eggs. I remember the parades and the "Easter bonnets with all the frills upon it"; the park picnics and all the games. Easter was a time to get wired with a sugar high that lasted into the wee hours of the night. Those were my early experiences regarding Easter.


As I grew older, I discovered Easter was more than an Easter basket, candy, eggs, parades, and picnics. It is a time that we celebrate the resurrection of the Savior, Jesus Christ. In Mark Chapter 16, when the ladies came to anoint the body of Jesus with spices, they found the tomb empty. The great stone was rolled away and an angel said "He is not here, He is risen". The women were frightened and they left. 


I like to look at Easter as an opportunity for a new beginning; something that was dead, brought back to life. Only the power of God could have brought Jesus back to life after He had been crucified, that is the miracle of Easter. Did you know that the same Spirit of God that raised Christ from the dead is able to perform a miracle in any life today? That is what the Apostle Paul tells us "But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit" (Romans 14:17).    


There are many people who need a resurrection in their life, a resurrection of  joy, peace. courage, or Spiritual renewal; that is what Easter is all about. I would like to see Bible believing Churches full this Easter. Won't you plan on being a part of the EASTER CELEBRATION this year and attend Church?   


At this special time of year the song writer Fanny Crosby says it best:

      Christ is risen! Hallelujah!

          Gladness fills the world today.

     From the tomb that could not hold Him,

          See, the stone is rolled away!


     Christ hath risen! Hallelujah!

          Friends of Jesus dry your tears;

      Through the veil of gloom and darkness,

          Lo, the Son of God appears!


      Christ hath risen! Hallelujah!

         He hath risen, as He said;

      He is now the King of Glory,

          And our great, exalted Head.


This is one of the great times of the year on the church calendrer. Will you be a part of the CELEBRATION that HE AROSE?


On behalf of the ministry of  FROM THE PULPIT we PRAYERFULLY wish you a very peaceful --- HAPPY EASTER.


FROM THE PULPIT.
