So much of what we consider to be normal has been turned on its head. From public school shut-downs, extreme fluctuations in the stock market, stay-at-home orders, and more, our lives have been rapidly and wholly turned upside down. Now we stand ready to celebrate Easter, but some wonder what it will be like.
As we navigate an Easter celebration, unlike any other, we stand positioned to express hope to the world in exciting ways. While we will certainly reflect on this unprecedented season as one that changed life as we know it when it comes to a week that made a difference in history, there is no greater one than Passion Week.
This is a week for every person to reflect on the impact of Christ’s death. He endured great anguish in his soul (Isaiah 53:11) and was acquainted with grief (Isaiah 53:3). The agony of dying was physically painful but also brought rejection by the Father (Matthew 22:46). Because of his pain, we can celebrate the Easter season as those who have been rescued from guilt, shame, and eternal suffering.
No matter what around you may seem out of place, we have hope in Christ that offers peace and confidence in any situation. Join thousands of believers who will choose to share Easter this weekend. You can participate by reflecting on the act of love carried out by Jesus through his death, burial, and resurrection.
This weekend, make plans to stream “The Passion of the Christ”, and reflect on Jesus’ act of love. Beyond reflection, we challenge you to share Easter by using the guidelines below to capture and share your personal story in light of how King Jesus has forever changed your heart. That story can be used to change the lives of many as together; we carry hope to the world.
- Do you know why Jesus had to die?
- Do you realize why Jesus’ death was uniquely different from every other death in history?
- What is the relationship between Jesus’ death and his resurrection?
- Do you realize the impact that Jesus’ death and resurrection can make in your personal life?
- What proof so you see that Jesus is Savior, and alive today? Search for evidence that are in the Scriptures.
