First Church Year #12: Easter Edition
By the time you are reading this, Easter is over. The eggs are gone. There is probably some leftover chocolate. What else, though, can I say about Sunday at church.
Simply put, we celebrated.
Sure, we celebrate every Sunday, but we seem to celebrate a little “harder” on Easter Sunday.
We celebrated the gospel. Christ died for our sins. He was buried. He was raised on the third day.
It is this gospel that binds all of us at my church (and your church too) together. Nothing else.
One of the things that I have tried to focus on this year is community. This gospel is what makes this community of believers possible.
I could go on and on about all of the details of what went on at my church on Easter.
Simply put, like I said before, we celebrated the gospel that makes us a community of faith.
That is what Easter is about.
Not the bunny.
Not the eggs.
Not the chocolate.
It’s about the work of Christ.
That’s what I love about my church. It’s about the work of Christ.
How was your Easter Sunday?
