Easter Cannot Be Forgotten
People need to be reminded of who and what Easter is about.
Christians can start reviving the Easter spirit by reminding their children of the love of Jesus during an Easter egg hunt.
Easter is mentioned much less than it once was by either Christians or the general public. Easter celebrates the belief that Jesus, a real historical figure who taught about love and kindness, came back to life after being tortured and killed. As some scholars have pointed out, it isn’t likely that his closest followers, who had been in hiding after his death, would have suddenly risked their lives to come out into the open and say they had seen him alive again if it hadn’t been true. That is why Easter also celebrates a belief that is not devoid of possibility.
The Jesus that Easter celebrates taught people how to treat one another in a fair and understanding way. He taught people not to try to condemn others without thinking of their own faults first. Jesus taught people to show compassion to others, even people who were very different from themselves. He also wasn’t afraid to be around people who were considered outcasts because he cared about all people. Did he also not encourage people to give to the poor? This is the Jesus that Easter celebrates.
Christians should try to revive the Easter season and keep it alive year after year by playing a more involved role in reminding each other what and who Easter is about. They should also look for more ways to respectfully share their beliefs about Easter with the rest of the public to help them find more of an interest in acknowledging it. Easter celebrates a love and hope that society at large should see as a positive presence in the public square. Christians can start reviving the Easter spirit by reminding their children of the love of Jesus during an Easter egg hunt.
