Meaning of Easter

Reflecting on the past few months, I long for a moment of Peace in my spirit. A quite mind allows me time to think through the experiences of family life, work life, and if I’m walking right, spiritual? As I start this day, I must stop and express my gratitude to Jesus Christ, the Lord thy God and to the Great I am, God Almighty.

It’s April 2014, most people are running about shopping and making plans for Easter Sunday. You know the day of the great bunny, the hunt for eggs in your very best Sunday clothes. Now I never understood this. Every year my mother would buy me a new Easter Sunday outfit. Haul me off to someone’s house for an Easter egg hunt, with other kids. Once we arrived all the kids would stay inside the house while the parents placed eggs throughout the property. Then one of the parents would come inside the house a say, “Let’m rip.” So, we would run outside, with our very best still on, to dig around in the yard looking for Easter eggs. Later I found the meaning of Easter had nothing too due with the great bunny and eggs.

Especially this year all of us should think about the “Seven Last Words of the Cross” and the Newness of Life of resurrection Sunday.

1. Luke 23:34: Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.
2. Luke 23:43: Truly, I say to you today, you will be with me in paradise.
3. John 19:26–27: Woman, behold your son. Behold your mother.
4. Matthew 27:46 & Mark 15:34 My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?
5. John 19:28: I thirst.
6. John 19:29-30: It is finished.
7. Luke 23:46: Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.

I want you to read each of the Seven Last Words and think about your life in the perspective of Forgiveness, Salvation, Relationship, Abandonment, Distress, and Triumph.

As we step through the human experience, understand how to grow into works of faith in God, even under extreme anguish. The anguish that families of Malaysia Air 370 are still going through or the families of the teens involved in a bus crash, while on a college tour, or the Nigeria families of 129 school girls kidnapped by suspected militants, and of course, the 300 families anguished due to the sunken ferry in South Korean. Of course, let us not forget Syria, Iraq and the world poor.

You won’t have to look to far this Good Friday, to think of your own experience of human anguish and work through the process like Jesus to Forgive.

Peace and Wholeness!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Wonderful and insightful post. Too often we get caught up in the commercial aspect of an holiday and forget the real reason behind it. Peace and blessings to you as well.
