Philippians 3:10 (New International Version)
10I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death
Easter is an exciting time of year. It's spring time and hopefully the weather is beautiful. There are Easter Egg hunts, eggs to color and decorate, baskets to give out to the kiddies with lots of chocolate and jelly beans and nice outfits to wear to church and Easter dinner. We all get so busy this time of the year with all the activities and preparations and sometimes we lose sight of the true message of Easter. Easter is not about the bunny, even though he is really cute and it's fun to eat the chocolate version!
Julia's homework assignment over Easter break is to tell someone she doesn't know the true meaning of Easter. She is so excited and nervous. She wanted to go to the park that very day to tell this special story to someone. We didn't get to venture out that day, but this weekend she is preparing to find someone to tell about the "power of His resurrection."
I am so proud that she has such a thirst and hunger to share God's word. We should all be this excited and let everyone know that Jesus gave the ultimate sacrifice for our sins! When was the last time you felt excited to spread the word of God? I hope that Julia will carry her love of God always. I hope she always has that zeal to run out and talk about her love of God.
So this weekend spread the good news! Tell someone about God's love and Jesus's ultimate sacrifice. Tell the story of the ressurection...
