Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Easter for born-again Christians is a time for great rejoicing because of the resurrection of Jesus. It is also a time of great sadness because of the Crucifixion of Our Lord on Good Friday.
Now is the time for each of us to reflect on our own lives as followers of Jesus. Each of us has to ask ourselves “Have I been effective in promoting the Gospel in my life? Could I have done more to promote the Gospel of Jesus?” Our redemption has come with such a great price. Even though there was a resurrection there had to be a crucifixion. No cross – No crown.
Therefore our own life in promoting the Gospel should always be active. May I be bold and say, let each Christian reading this bring to his/her service on Easter Sunday, at least one or two people who do not know Jesus. I am not asking you to preach to them. Just to bring them along for I am sure that the Pastor will be preaching a message of resurrection that Sunday. Let the Holy Ghost touch these new people.
Wouldn’t this be a wonderful revival if thousands of God’s children brought along at least one or two people who do not know Jesus to their Easter service? I believe that this would please you, your pastor and God.
May I take this opportunity of asking God to Bless you and your families this Easter.
EASTER: WHY are we commanded to remember His death but not celebrate His birth?
