Why We Celebrate Easter

Easter is one of many holidays we have to celebrate. There’s also Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years and others we don’t need to mention. But the big question is, why do we celebrate Easter? It’s because Jesus died on the cross to wash away all our sins. God loves us so much that He killed His only son so we can have eternal life with Him. But Easter’s big surprise is Jesus rose from the dead!!!

Some people turn holidays that were meant to have important points into fun days. They turn Christmas into getting presents and getting; instead of giving. They turn Thanksgiving into just a big feast without thankfulness. And they turned Easter into a big egg hunt and candy! Most people do all the parties on the days but only some do what the days are really about. If you do all the fun events on Easter I want you to read this blog. It’s ok if we do the fun stuff but we should also celebrate what it’s really about.

I want you to celebrate all the special things that the days are about. Give thanks on Thanksgiving, celebrate Jesus birth on Christmas, and celebrate Jesus’ resurrection on Easter. What’s your favorite holiday? I hope to hear from you soon.

“And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.” 1 Co. 15:14

  1. I like all the holidays for different reasons. I make an extra effort to make sure I include worshiping God when celebrating the holidays. Using music when celebrating is important to me, too!

  2. I agree with Grandma Maust….I like them all, they each have a special meaning. Christmas and Easter are probably my favorite.

  3. I love this, Jacob. I was so, so proud of you for getting over that slanted wall! You did such a good job and found out you were stronger and more courageous than you realized. I’m always going to be there for you to give advice and encourage you to never give up. I love you, buddy!
