What is Holy Saturday or Easter Saturday? Seems a sort of limbo or a last day to rush around getting eggs for all the poor children who might not have ten chocolate eggs this year. You might have to excuse the sarcasm. When I get up tomorrow I will be filming (hopefully) the sunrise or the Son-rise service outside, children will be getting up everywhere looking for eggs in an excited manner. Who am I to rain on their parade? But I do have concerns for them because this battle is not against this world. To be honest I don’t think it matters how many eggs you eat or how much opulence you taste. At some point in your life their is a crux of the matter and a decision is needed. I don’t even think it matters what type of denomination you choose, as long as you follow the christian basic core concepts.
Jesus came to save you and me. He did this because He was the only person who could do this, He designed you so He might know! Many people have suffered in their lives horrendously but Jesus was the only sinless individual (human) who could lay everyones guilt on himself. Don’t ask me how scientifically!
He’s God so He can do anything.
There have been people who have questioned me about “Well I don’t really sin, not in comparison!”, but Jesus says if you even think something it is a sin, that’s hard, that’s extremism. Extreme love that Jesus portrays Because He doesn’t want us to die and to have wasted a life and not live a wonderful next life with Him. He wants us to accept Him, but not by forcible means, not by grabbing women and forcing them to marry and thinking that will win like Isis in the Middle East seem to be doing. The battle is not of this world.
There is evil in this world
28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” 29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. 30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
But really accepting that we sin is just the start, we must accept Jesus as Lord and saviour. Not as prophet or as a holy man, or as a person who gives good advice – but as Lord and saviour. You are either with him or against him, there is no other way to God, and we as parents and grown ups have the priority to make sure our children and all other children come to God and make that decision for themselves.
Tonight I look forward to people accepting Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
