Getting to know you (#G2KU) is a new blog series that will give us a chance to learn more about each other.
Growing up I celebrated Easter by attending church, gathering with family to eat and eat some more. It was a celebration centered around family and food - the egg hunt came later. I was always told the true meaning of Easter, but it never felt like it.
Don’t get me wrong, I love celebrating Easter with family, food and egg hunts, but because of all this we can tend to miss the true meaning of Easter. It is not the celebration of the crucifixion - it’s a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. For me now, it is still a focus on family, food and egg hunts, but I will always remember the sacrifice Jesus made.
It is through the death of Jesus that the resurrection was possible, making the way for forgiveness. We were forgiven by the sacrifice of the life of Jesus, but given a new life with His resurrection - now that is worth celebrating.
Now you know how and why I celebrate Easter. Share with me how you celebrate Easter. Make sure you use the hashtag for getting to know you, #G2KU.
