Easter thoughts

Some years, Easter just seems to really sink in. The real reason that we celebrate Easter is so often lost, as many Christian holidays are, in the marketing. Tonight, Chad and I had the privilege to sit with a group of sixth graders and watch “The Passion of the Christ”. We’ve watched this movie several times before. The first time was tough – just the graphic nature of the film was enough to get through. Tonight, my heart flat out just hurt. Not only was I sad, I was ashamed that Jesus endured so much for me. How do I go about everyday life not constantly remembering His sacrifice?
Just like those that celebrated His entry in to Jerusalem on what we now call Palm Sunday and five days later forget who He is…that’s what we do every week! We go to church on Sunday with the best of intentions for our week. We celebrate knowing Jesus! We love Him! We pray to glorify Him everyday! How short we fall everyday. How often we forget His name – forget His sacrifice – forget His pain. We have a long, long, way to go.
