Seek the Lord while He may be found. Call upon Him while He is near. Isaiah 55:6
Just like Christmas, Easter seems to get lost in commercial hoopla. Stores have candy sales and dress sales. About the only place you see the true meaning is at a Christian bookstore. Easter Egg Hunts are very popular. I used to hide 'Christian eggs' with a Bible verse and money in them. I even bought some 'Resurrection Eggs' for the children. There is nothing really wrong about hunting eggs just like there is no problem with Santa Claus. We just have to keep our focus on Jesus not the Easter Bunny.
Easter is a happy time because it celebrates Jesus resurrection from the dead. While you are maybe helping hunt eggs have you found Jesus? Is He part of your every day life or a historical figure you learn about on these two holidays? Is He real to you? He can be.
Christ the Lord is risen, he is risen indeed. Seek Him today!! Don't just wait till next Easter to get to know Him better.
PRAYER: Lord I am thankful you are alive and here daily for us to call upon you. Someday you will come back with a mighty shout and all people will indeed know you are Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
