Another Easter celebration has come and gone. For some, it is a time to visit family and friends. For others it meant nothing – just another holiday to spend relaxing or organising parties and events.
To the Christian however, what Easter represents is fundamental to our faith. It has nothing to do with Easter eggs or Bunnies but its foundation rests in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The days leading to Easter, is the season of lent, which is meant to be a period of fasting, praying and meditating on the sufferings of Jesus leading to His death on the cross of calvary. It is common for people, even those who are not committed Christians to give up something they like during the season of lent. Now that Easter has come and gone, what next? For many, Easter has become a distant memory. They are already thinking of the next thing to look forward to.
