An Easter Message to Christians and non-Christians

I would just like to wish my listeners a very Happy Easter weekend. But for those of you who are not Christian let me explain why this holiday is so important to people. No really. That’s all. I promise, this won’t hurt a bit.

Christians believe that God, the same God who created the sun and the moon and stars, the same God who, as we celebrate this Passover, loved his people so much that he freed them from the bondage of men, humbled himself to become a man himself and free all from the slavery of sin. So, no matter what you’ve done no matter what you’re doing you are forgiven and he loves you. This is what Christians believe.

Now some will point to his miracles as one sign of that love. But one of my Christian friends points to this event instead. That the same God that made the heavens and the earth got down on his knees and washed the feet of the very people he created. And then allowed himself to be beaten and crucified as payment for man’s transgressions to other men and God. And then in one final whack at destruction and death, Christians believe he rose from the dead.

Now, Christians know, some consider this blasphemy while others consider it simply superstition. Indeed, there is no reason behind this. You either believe or you don’t. But for those who do, it is a message of love and forgiveness that brings tears to the eyes of grown men and brings sinners to their knees in gratitude.

But Christians will tell you, the ones who truly hold this in their hearts, it changes their lives forever. It’s not just awesome … it’s awesomely awesome. Happy Easter.

    I heard you say this message at the close of the Good Friday program and was very moved by your sincerity. It wasn’t preachy but factual and clear. It suggests you understand, I pray you also believe and have the benefit of faith. Thank you for speaking on behalf of believers.
    May God bless you, brother.

    The act of Jesus washing the feet of his disciples at the Last supper is one of the greatest lessons that anyone can learn from the Christian faith. It was the ultimate act of humility performed by a “man” who everyone in the room believed to be the son of God. I believe it was done to show that no servant is greater than his master. What a great message to bring to all people at this time of Easter.

    Happy and Blessed easter to all!
