This day is symbolic of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. So we celebrate it according to the world’s standard by shopping for new clothes, shoes and hats. Feeding our children more candy than usual and dying eggs for them to hunt.
However, as Christians, this day should mean more to us than those commercials things. Therefore, we must celebrate it according to God’s standard by praising and worshipping him for our risen savior who bore our sins and paid a ransom that he did not owe.
This day means that we are free to walk in the newness of life and no longer bound by the wages of sin because we have been resurrected and given the gift of eternal life. “For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection.” Romans 4:6.
