Easter

An Easter thought.
The proper way to celebrate Easter, and Holy week, for any professed Christian, is not to spend one day in church listening to hymns and sermons, and then forget about him until Christmas. Rather, it is to take up one's cross every day, following the Savior's example of obedience to the Father and self-mastery. It is to remember, not so much his agonizing death, as his teachings and exemplary life, and the promise of new life once the suffering and death are over. It's not about new clothes and the Easter Bunny; it's about sorrow turning into joy, a gift from a living, loving God.

Comments:
And we must remember that He lives and we shall live.
