Easter Reflections!

 

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!

  1. May the Lord continue to walk with you Stella as we steadily approach the Cross. You are absolutely right about the significance of the Resurrection. With the Resurrection comes the Lord’s grace and opportunity for Salvation.

  2. Stella, I appreciate what you say. This is a good time of year to spend time discerning how God is continuing to call us into the building the kingdom of God. The Kingdom of God is heaven right here on earth. It is a world where we learn to share with each other. It is a world where we practise unconditional love. It is a world where we stand with those who are pushed to the fringes of society. It is a world where we reflect the light of God wherever we go.

    I’m curious, how does somebody rising from the dead establish that this person is the Son of God? To make such an assertion just seems to be a form of argument from ignorance/incredulity.
    Even if Jesus actually did rise from the dead, at best we have something unexplained. So why is “Jesus is the Son of God” the best explanation, and how did you determine this?

  4. I have a blog where I post weekly. With Easter just days away I have been struggling to think of a post worthy of this most important day. Your post is great. May I have permission to repost this entry . Of course I would give you full credit.

  5. It is indeed a deep time of reflection. I find personally as a Christian who grew up in the church that it’s difficult for me to understand the significance of Easter. I know it in my heart! I just find it hard to fully comprehend it which I don’t think I ever truly will. That’s what my Easter post is about. https://calebbale.com/youll-understand-if-youve-been-abandoned/

    Thanks for sharing and asking challenging questions about faith!
