The Real Meaning of Easter

Post by John on Sun Jan 31, 2010 7:44 pm

Get Ready for Easter!

Best to Get off our Kesters and Get Ready for Easter! When We did the Christmas Thread it took some Time to Get it Up and Running... so I thought we might get a Running Start on Easter! Anybody Game! I'd like to roll off the 1st Salvo with "He's Alive" by Dolly Parton!

Like Your Christmas Thread I have to agree that Easter is made into a Holiday rather than a day of remembrance. Sorry if that's not clear, but it's just, Easter Bunny's and this, that and the other and ... not that it's so bad, but it's kind of like putting on your suit and tie to go out and change a tire. Like feathering a chicken, but not cooking it! Makes no since and misses the main point!

This is the Post as it appears on the main site.

Easter

The Nitti Gritty and Far From Pretty

True Story & Meaning of the Day



Easter happened about 1977 years ago, on a Passover Weekend. Unlike Christmas it is a Day of the year that is Precisely Known. Jesus was Arrested, Tried, Unfairly Convicted By Fickle Public Opinion... Then Mocked, Scourged and Whipped and Hung on a Cross to Die... Which He Did! But His Death Was Not Just for the Satisfaction of the Jealous Religious Body that felt Threatened by Him or Because of the Ignorance of the Political Rulers that Oversaw the Deed... His Death Was For Us All!

Each of Us, Through our Selfishness and Personal Sins... Each of Us Helped to Drive the Nails into His Hands and Feet. We Have All Gone Astray... Not One of Us is Righteous and Jesus Died for Us All... He Freely Gave His Life so that We Could Live!



Greater Love Hath No Man Than This, That a Man Lay Down His Life for His Friends.
John 15:13

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Thankfully The Story Doesn't End Here

Because...

On The Third Day After They Killed Him

Jesus Came Back From The Dead

Unlike All the Fantasy Books That Try and Copy Him...

Jesus Actually Did It!

And He Did It to Show Us That We Too Will Live After This Physical Body Perishes.

A Simple Sample For All Ages To See!



Then the above posts from this thread... with everyones input was added next. Beautiful presentation of the Real Meaning of Easter.

Here is a beautiful devotional by Bob Gass....

The Tomb Is Empty
I am the resurrection and the life." John 11:25

Nine year-old Philip had Down's syndrome. In Sunday School the kids made fun of him because he was "different". The Sunday before Easter the teacher gave each child a plastic egg and asked them to look for symbols of new life like seeds and leaves, then place them inside the egg. The idea was to open their eggs next Sunday and discuss what they'd found. When the kids gathered they'd collected things like flowers, butterflies and rocks. But when the teacher opened Philip's egg it was empty. One kid said: "That's not fair, he didn't do it right!" Philip tugged at the teacher's sleeve and said: "I did do it right. It's empty because the tomb is empty. That's why we have new life." The class gasped - and from then on he became part of the group.

Philip's family knew his time would be short. He had too many problems for one small body. That summer he died. As the class of eight-year-olds faced the reality of death, they marched up to the altar - but not with flowers. Together with their teacher they each placed an empty plastic egg on their friend's tiny casket.

Jesus said: "I am the resurrection and the life, he that believeth on Me though he were dead, yet shall he live." Max Lucado says: "The cross is rich with God's gifts...As you feel the timber...trace the braid of the crown...finger the point of the spike - pause and listen. Perchance you'll hear him whisper: 'I did it just for you.'" So, are you willing to live for Him?

What does Easter mean to me? It means that Jesus suffered and died on the cross and He rose from the dead on that Sunday morning. He is alive and sitting at the right hand of the Father interceding for us. He took our place and because of His sacrifice we will spend eternity in heaven with Him. How wonderful and amazing is that?

God bless you and may you all have a Happy Easter.

Connie

Thank you for that story Heartstrings. My little brother has Down's Syndrome and he has always been our Little Angel! He is the most precious gift we have ever received and made our family a very loving caring family! He has often said things out of the blue... little things... seemingly simple things, but so profound and moving! Thank you for making this Easter very special for all of us. I'll share that story with my Mom and Dad and I know it will mean a lot!

I just found this video and wanted to share it with you.

The meaning of Easter - We are the reason why Jesus died on the cross.

Chow Yee did an amazing job in depicting how Jesus suffered for us. This video brought tears to my eyes.

I hope you enjoy it. God bless you.
