It is that time of year when Easter has come,
People enjoy it like a normal holiday,
But do you remember what God has done?
He sent his one and only son to take us from captivity,
He broke away the chains and tore the curtain,
That separated the Holy from you and me.
No longer are we to be bound to what the past brought,
The bitterness, anger, unforgiveness, lust, promiscuity,
That’s not what Jesus taught.
Him being on the cross is what brought us peace,
It is a gift freely given to all who want it,
You do not need to sign a lease.
Stop overcomplicating what is to be a gift,
Take it, and embrace it,
Use it to create a life shift.
Easter has become a time to buy tons of chocolate hares,
To have family and friends over for meals,
Has this world forgotten we are heavenly heirs?
Through the waters of baptism by his love and amazing grace,
By participating with him on the cross,
We can now one day see his face.
With a head pierced by a crown of thorns,
A heavy wooden beam on his torn back,
Insulted, ridiculed, he kept going up the hill,
A focus to save our souls he did not lack.
Via Dolorosa a path filled with pain,
For he knew two thousand years later,
We would still remember his name.
Because of his sacrifice and unconditional love,
We can have fellowship with each other,
And with the righteous God above.
Let’s not forget the darkness that covered the earth during that agonizing time,
For if it wasn’t Jesus on the cross and giving himself up for us,
We wouldn’t be able to hear God saying, “You are mine”.
