The purpose of this holiday above all others is Hope. A lot of conversation this political season has tossed out that word. But perhaps nobody symbolizes Hope more than Jesus did. Even faiths that don’t consider themselves Christian see the historical Jesus as a great teacher, a rabbi, or prophet.
Easter is a season of Hope. But unlike the political usage of the word, the Christian usage means hope for the conquest of man over his own failings through the power of faith and the belief in the triumph of life over death. Easter is proof that winter is not the final season.
Happy Easter and may God fill you with hope wherever you need it most in your life!
