Resurrection Sunday, not Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday. The children get dressed up in nice clothes and go to church. The adults get dressed up in their best suits and dresses and go to church. People run about buying clothes, chocolate bunnies, candy, dying eggs, and buying and fixing feasts. And gone is the true meaning of the day.

I’d rather call this day Resurrection Sunday. Because that is what it is. It is the day that we should recall the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is not just the pomp and circumstance of the day, nor the speeches at the Sunday School program. It is the day to remember the sacrifice of the Lord upon the cross for our sins, and His triumphant rising up from the grave. “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow; because He lives, all fear is gone”. If he had not rose up from the grave on that 1st day of the week all those many years ago, we could not sing that song today.

If you have not reflected on what the Lord’s death, burial, and resurrection means, take a few moments right now and give it some thought. The Lord died on the cross for our sins, He was buried in the tomb, and He rose up from the grave on the third day, as He said He would. All of this was so that our sins could be forgiven, and we could become the children of God. Have you accepted His sacrifice? Are you a child of God because of the blood of the Lord? If not, why not? (Romans 10:9 – 10)
