CHRIST TO CANDY?

 

Is Easter just another old familiar day?  Has Easter just become candy, pretty dresses and a family dinner?  Has Easter been turned into the message of pastel colors and a mythical character traveling all over the world to give candy to all the children – The Easter Bunny?

 

How did we go from the Cross of Christ and His death on the cross for the forgiveness of sins to the bunny?  How did we go from the suffering, death and Resurrection to Easter eggs?  We need to take a step back and ask ourselves, how did we go from Christ to Candy?

 

The further we get from the day when events originally happened, their message and impact begins to fade and dim with each passing year.  There are many examples such as wars, 911 and many others.  Has the same thing happened to us?  Have we become desensitized to what Easter has become rather than what it really is?

 

May I challenge you to take a fresh look at the true account of Easter as told to us from Scripture and not Facebook?  Christ did no die upon a cross for the Easter bunny but for you and me.  From before time began, God saw through the eons of time that each of us would need a Savior and provided one.

 

There are so many wonderful hymns for Easter, but perhaps none that presents it as clearly as The Old Rugged Cross.

 

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,

The emblem of suffering and shame;

And I love that old cross where the dearest and best

For a world of lost sinners was slain.

 

So, I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,

Till my trophies at last I lay down;

I will cling to the old rugged cross,

And exchange it someday for a crown.


O that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,

Has a wondrous attraction for me;

For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above

To bear it to dark Calvary.

 

In that old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,

A wondrous beauty I see,

For ‘twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,

To pardon and sanctify me.

 

Have a blessed Easter!
