The Day(s) After Easter.

Our business on the day after Easter should stay the same. We are not to stop saying He is Risen and go from posting cute pictures and memes about Jesus to gossiping and backbiting about our church leaders and fellow members. Our job on the day after easter is to continue what we were doing, continue letting people know that He is risen — Don’t lose focus.

Sons of (S)laughter.

Like Jesus, Isaac was a son of promise, long awaited by his parents. The sons of (s)laughter were born under unnatural circumstances. Isaac was born to a mother who was old and barren while Jesus was born to young woman who was a virgin. Two extreme situations that should have made it impossible to conceive a child, yet with God – all things are possible.

Our Sunrise Saviour.

The message that Jesus is risen is a great truth but more often than not, it sounds no better than little children saying, “Yeah, yeah, yeah. My God’s better than your god.” Our faith is not in an empty tomb, but in a living Saviour. Easter is God’s recognition of your life’s value. When we sing “our God has robbed the grave” do we really understand what it means? Do we know what Jesus really did for us? Do we know how much it cost Him? Do we know what Easter affords us?

Movie Review: Risen.

The faith of every Christian rests on the truth of the resurrection of Jesus. The question really isn’t whether He did or did not exist, (because history clearly documents His time on earth), the real question is whether He resurrected.
