IS DIFFERENT A BAD THING?

Easter is certainly going to be different this year.  No physical church service.  No choir singing beautiful songs.  No family dinner with grandchildren seated around the table.

But you know what?  Easter will still be a glorious day because it was never meant to be a day for celebrating traditions.  It's a time for celebrating Jesus Christ and what He did for us through His finished work on the cross and His resurrection!!

The virus might have stopped the "where" and "how" we celebrate, but it cannot stop the *why" we celebrate.  Nothing can.  Regardless of what is happening in the world, it can never stop the "reason" we rejoice!  NEVER. Why?  Because the "reason" has already happened!  And nothing, NOTHING, can change history. 

The cross is bare.  The tomb is empty.  Jesus accomplished what He was sent to accomplish.  He is seated at the right hand of His Father, interceding on our behalf!  And because He is alive, *we* too can live - today and tomorrow and for eternity! 

So what if we can't dress up and go to a  public service.  So what if we can't sing hymns with a physical congregation.  So what if we can't have a big family dinner.  WE CAN STILL CELEBRATE JESUS!!!!

The virus didn't win. Satan didn't win.  Jesus did and we will celebrate that - not in a physical location, not with man-made traditions - but in our hearts, with our hearts!!!

Have a blessed Easter.  This could well be the best one ever! 

For God's heart to ours....
