I wanted today’s post to be special for Easter yet my own thoughts weren’t coming together in an organized fashion. Special thanks to simpledimple for giving me permission to reblog one of their posts. Today and every day let us give thanks to our savior. We are blessed beyond measure.
This is the Lenten Season.
A period of time where Christians especially the Catholics observe lent and engage in fasting as they reflect upon the teachings of Christ. His death and what it signifies to the body of Christ – The Church.
Easter signifies the victory over death by our Lord Jesus Christ.
It’s a defining moment to ponder on the climactic events leading to the crucifixion of our Lord.
Easter is the reason we are Christians in the first place.
If Christ did not rise from the dead, if there was no resurrection, there wouldn’t be any Easter to celebrate because He would have been considered just another teacher or a mere scholar.
However, the resurrection power changed the narrative and it is the irrefutable proof that Jesus Christ was really the Son of God.
So as we celebrate this symbolism of our Faith for those of us who believe in Him, it is a time to reflect on our Christian ethics and values.
As Christians, this is the period when we ask ourselves pertinent questions regarding our Christian walk and work.
It’s a sobering time for self-examination.
Are we really for real? I mean, are we really Christians in the real sense?
Do our beliefs tally with our actions?
Are we practising what we preach or the word of God that we read?
In other words, does our lifestyle reflect good moral values as they ought to be?
Are we shinning the lights and tenets of Christianity the way it ought to be or are we just pretenders and hypocrites, calling the name of God in vain?
Do we do what we preach or we preach the word and turn around to act otherwise?
Perhaps, we should spend some solitary moments to answer these questions sincerely in our hearts before we celebrate the resurrection on Easter Sunday.
Good Friday is the commemoration of his crucifixion.
And Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection with glee.
So can I call you a true Christian?
This season calls for introspections and inner search of our humanity
A time dedicated to prayers and fasting too.
A time to reach out to people with LOVE!
May God hear and answer our supplications even as we pray in this Lenten season.
God bless you.
Peace and Love!
