Amid the fidgeting children and the yawns of those who were heavily persuaded into attending services today, the minister will tell the story of how Jesus died a brutal death on the cross for our sins. The minister will expound on how they laid Him in a tomb and three days later He arose victoriously. Having conquered death and hell, stripping Satan of his power, Jesus Christ has set us free from the bondage of sin. He has made good on His promise to provide us with an abundant life, if we will but receive Him. Breathlessly, the pastor brings the sermon to a close and invites whosoever will to come and accept Christ as their Savior.
Some, sitting dressed in their Easter finery today, will take that step of faith and receive Him into their hearts and make Him Lord of their lives. Some will hold back thinking there will be another chance, after all, there is always next year. Others will remain untouched by the same tired, ancient story they’ve heard every year for years. O how our hearts break for those who seem passed feeling, that are unaffected by the work of Christ. Still others will rejoice that they made the decision to live for Christ sometime previously and now share in the joy and hope that this pastel holiday brings.
The children bounce from the church house with unrestrained anticipation. Each child carrying a basket just waiting to filled with colored eggs, chocolate bunnies, and a myriad of other shapes and flavors of candy. Happiness echoes in the cool spring air for the duration of the hunt. Then just as quickly as it appeared, the pastel rainbow dissipates. The church house and grounds are once again quiet and still.
