Are you one of those people who celebrate both Christmas and Easter, while missing the Christ?
Are you like the folks we hear about in scripture? They did all the right things but they didn’t have the right hearts.
They gave him a kingly welcome.
They threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it.
As he went along, people spread their cloaks on the road. (Luke 19:35, 36, NIV)
They sang all the right songs.
Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. (Luke 19:38, Psalm 118:26, KJV)
They hung on his every word. (Luke 19:48b, NIV)
And yet…they all cried out “Crucify him!”(Matthew 27:22, NIV)
Easter is coming soon. Will your words continue to hold empty truths?
Friend, stop pretending. You aren’t fooling anyone.
Prayer- Lord, make the Christ real to us,…for our own sake. Amen.
