Easter is more to me than one church service and one fancy meal out. The story of the resurrection of Christ Jesus is so remarkable. One must believe in miracles to believe this story. I am 35 years of age and I have yet to see anybody rise from the dead! Although a world without miracles is too dark for me.
Jesus taught that he was the light of the world and that whoever would follow him would no longer walk in darkness but would have the light of life. I’ve suffered with darkness throughout my life story. I’ve experienced depression, despair and melancholy. Manic depression undiagnosed as a boy was the greatest beast I have ever had to battle. The darkness of sin and mental illness caused me to go on a quest in search of light. This quest began at age 17. I’ve been following Jesus since this age. The light of Christ is the reason I am the man that I am.
I hope and pray that you enjoy a celebration tomorrow on Easter Sunday if you have experienced this light I’ve discussed. I hope and pray that you enjoy a celebration tomorrow on Easter Sunday if you have not experienced the light that I’ve talked about. And I pray that the light has found you or will in the future find you well while giving you someone to rejoice in and something to smile about.
Christ is risen!
