A few days from now, Christiandom will be celebrating the Easter, an annual event to mark the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Easter celebration during a pandemic
Even in times like this, when it seems that the ravaging coronavirus pandemic is taking the shine off this year’s celebration, it doesn’t change the historical fact that Jesus still died and resurrected.
Easter celebration is important because without the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Christianity would be another dead religion. As Paul wrote in his first letter to the Corinthians,
“if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain [useless, amounting to nothing], and your faith is also vain [imaginary, unfounded, devoid of value and benefit—not based on truth].” 1 Corinthians 15:14 AMP
While we stay locked down at home over the Covid 19 scare, it should not prevent us from appreciating and celebrating the benefits of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for us.
So join me to say All hail king Jesus who died to redeem us.
Happy Easter celebration to you all in advance.
