Easter is tomorrow, the day that Christians have always seen as not only the greatest day of the year, but the greatest day of history. Is that weird to say. It's a superlative: the greatest day of history, but truly if you look at the resurrection it changes everything for not only humanity, but all of God's creation. In the resurrection we see Jesus defeating sin and death, he defeated the devil. He stood in our place on the cross as he took our sin to the grave two days before and that is why we celebrate this great day - because it changes everything. The resurrection promises that redemption is real and we have a true hope - these are all some things we'll be talking about tomorrow.
Quick fact: did you know that early Christians (that were mostly Jews) started worshiping on Sundays as mini-Easter every week? It's true...
That's what this season of Lent has been: getting ready to celebrate the Resurrection - that's what we've been anticipating this whole time. There's still time though. Let's say you've done nothing for Lent - in fact you did the opposite of what you hoped. So what do you do? Make some time tonight to pray, to read Matthew 27 to prepare and read about the crucifixion and Good Friday. Sit in quiet and silence, whether it's after you leave your friend's house or after the kids go to bed. But get some time to prepare...
because Easter is coming,
