Why Easter
     Why do we need Easter this year? Why did we need it last year? What is the point of reminding us of the time when mankind failed beyond imaginable. Why rehash the darkest time in all of history. We look back every year and see Christ death. We see the time when He was wrongly accused and wrongly beaten. We see men acting like animals in the name of justice, and this “justice” murder the Son of God. So why do we need this every year
     Because…. The story of Easter didn’t end there. He wasn’t left in the tomb to rot and be forgotten.  After 3 days Jesus defeated death, and conquered sin. He did this so that it would have no hold on us and has no sting. Jesus put Himself through unimaginable pain and suffering so that we could live forever with Him and His Father. That is what my Lord did.
     So this Easter, when you come together around your table and eat you ham and turkey and deviled eggs, remember this: Jesus Christ Died and was buried and ROSE again to defeat death so that you could live. This Sunday isn’t about food and candy and egg hunts, it is about God’s great Love.
