Ask the Pastor

April 2, 2018 - Michael Porzio
What Does Easter mean?

Easter is the most important and oldest celebration of the of the Christian church, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Easter shows us that perfect love always wins. In the end, whatever powerful people might try to do to silence love, God’s way is always stronger. Easter shows us that our mortal bodies die, but life for us continues. Easter shows us that we need not fear death. Death no longer has dominion over us. Easter turns the world upside down (really, right side up). Love defeats hate. Hope defeats fear. Sacrifice defeats greed. Mercy defeats might. Life defeats death. If you celebrate Easter, you are celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But you are also celebrating God’s great love for us, a love strong enough to defeat death itself. Ultimately, Easter means that Christ has given you victory over death and a new life. I pray that in this Easter season you will experience again, victory over death and that you would walk in a greater new life. Happy Easter to you all.
