Easter's Message for the Entire World

04/13/2006

I realize that Easter is considered a "religious holiday." I appreciate the fact that Christians come together inside their churches to celebrate in various manners. But the reality is the Easter message is as much for the non-believer as the believer; perhaps even more so.

The concept of a supernatural Savior conquering the anguish of this world offers so much for so many. It's a message that needs to be heard outside of the church walls.

For the one who's experiencing loneliness, Easter offers a message of comfort.

For the one who's battling addiction, Easter offers a message of liberty.

For the one who's suffering in pain, Easter offers a message of healing.

For the one who's weak and weary, Easter offers a message of strength and rest.

For the single mother struggling to cope, the promise of Easter gives hope.

For children without a home, the promise of Easter gives joy.

For the marriage that's crumbling day by day, the promise of Easter gives restoration.

For the family that's mourning the loss of a loved one, the promise of Easter gives peace.

What the world lacks, Easter can provide: mercy, forgiveness, grace and love. Like a little child scouring the yard for hidden eggs, we can find the true gifts of Easter if we will just look for them. They may be found in a prayer, in a passage of scripture or in another person who has experienced the resurrection power of Jesus Christ.

If you or someone you know has had enough of what this world too often offers in all of its cruelty, hatred, selfishness and pain, try something different this weekend. Jesus was beaten, killed and buried in a tomb. Easter commemorates the power that released him from the death and the grave.

Discover someone who has the power to lift you out of any pit on this earth. He is still alive today and ready to reveal His resurrection power to all who will believe in Him and receive His life. Find out what treasures await you when you experience the true celebration of Easter.
