I am not against anyone enjoying a holiday or enjoying buying their child an Easter basket full of goodies or taking their children Easter egg hunting. But I am concerned that a lot of children who celebrate Easter have no unearthly idea why they are celebrating Easter. So many people enjoy this holiday without ever being taught the significance of it. Without Jesus becoming sin for us and dying on the cross we wouldn't have salvation. Without salvation we are condemned to die guilty of our sins. Please, if you know of anyone who unknowingly celebrates Easter, witness to that person. Who knows? He or she may get saved.
I have prepared a short description of the Passover, how it began and why Christians celebrate the Passover. I hope that it will help someone meet Jesus for the first time, believe in him and accept him as their Lord and Savior. What a beautiful time it is when someone gives their heart to God.
Passover was instituted to commemorate the saving of the Hebrew firstborn in Egypt at the time when God, smiting with death the firstborn of the Egyptians, passed over the houses of the Jews who marked their homes with the blood of a lamb. To Christians it sets forth the great fact and consequence of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ in the shedding of his blood so that we can be forgiven of our sins.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:16 KJV
