Atlanta's highways and stores were filled with people doing their last minute shopping for Easter Sunday, and I couldn't help but think if all of this is really necessary???
Each year people from all over go out and purchase clothes for Easter Sunday Service. They get dressed and attend a 1, 2, or sometimes 3 hour service (a once a year event for many) and hope like h*ll the service ends quickly. They buy Easter Baskets filled with candy, egg dye, and prepare lavish meals.
But the event that the celebration is surrounded by is hardly publicized, talked about, or even mentioned outside of the church. You would think that the church would witness on the eve before, offering salvation to those that are lost before the dawn of Easter.
Is it possible that there's people in need of salvation outside of the church??? I'm just saying...
I think if the true meaning of the exploited celebration was really talked about it would destroy the misconceptions, and possibly save people a lot of money... did the light bulb just go off???
This year I hope that people will enjoy and celebrate the true reason for the celebration and that is Christ... No ifs, ands, or buts about. So eat up, drink up, and by all means don't waste nothing on that purple silk suit baby...(in my Grandma Feebie voice)
