I want to encourage everyone to remember that one special day we take some time for reflection upon the event of Christ Jesus' resurrection. The faithful consider the impact of Christ's resurrection regularly in worship. Others choose to reflect on the day called Easter. Because of the pandemic, churches cannot open, and even small groups must not gather. It is now up to each person to pick up their cross.
Easter church attendance is always exceptional when compared to regular Saturday or Sunday attendance. There will be no conventional Easter church service this year. Whether you are a once or twice a year church attendee or a regular attendee, this year's observance now falls on us as husbands, wives, fathers, and mothers. If you have children at home, this is especially crucial. They learn life lessons more by what they see than by what they hear. This single day of commemoration in your family history will be remembered forever, in your child's memory, your mates, and in God's.
We should be both willing and able to explain to our family the significance of the Lord's resurrection. Take the time to put together an observance for your family, even if there are two of you. It need not be lengthy and theatrical or perfect according to your church standards. For example, you might just spend time sharing stories about how God has given you a new life. Even the most current changes He made possible for you through His ultimate sacrifice and resurrection. If you are so inclined, you might look up and share a few verses from Scripture showing how Christ Jesus' resurrection makes everything possible for all of us.
Commemorating the resurrection of Christ is a perfect time and opportunity to reflect on the new life we have in Christ through His sacrifice and resurrection. Praise God! Amen and Amen.
