Bunny or the Cross?

"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven." Matthew 7:21
The greatest miracle ever, occurred on Easter Sunday over 2000 years ago when Jesus arose from the dead leaving an empty tomb. What a day of rejoicing it was! He said He would come again and He did. He is alive and living today waiting for the time He calls believers home to be with Him. 
So much of the Christian celebration of this wonderful day is crowded out by egg hunts, pretty dresses, bunnies, candy, baby chicks, and feasting with family and friends. Similar to Christmas, it's a time people  come out in droves and show up at churches.  If only the desire for the Lord was present the other 363 days. Deep down these individuals, called 'holly and lily Christians' by an USAF Chaplain friend of ours, know it's the right thing to do. Being a Christian is more than church attendance on religious holidays or even going to church on a regular basis. It is living like a Christian all 365 days and loving Him with your whole heart. 
Why not pray and ask Him to come into your heart today. 

PRAYER:Help me  to not get caught up in the worldly celebrations but to focus on you and what you have done for me, a sinner. Thank you Lord. In Jesus' name.Amen.
