From our Family and Music Minister

If you are anything like me, change is not always welcomed with open arms.  I love technology and seeing the benefits from the advancements we see taking place.  I consider myself tech-savvy, but I do get stuck in my ways of doing things.  For over 25 years, I have been running live sound for people.  I have upgraded a lot of equipment; however, one thing I have always “stuck with” are CD players.  Even though only 25% of the music I used for the last talent show was on CDs, I was still reluctant to change and burned a majority of the music to CDs before the program.  Some people may say I'm stubborn, but I believe I have a suitable method - and why change?

 

This Sunday, we celebrate Easter. I'm sure most of you have your Easter traditions. It may involve waking up early and going to a sunrise service, going to church with family, coloring Easter eggs, or gathering with family to eat a special meal.  Unfortunately, this year we will not be able to do our regular traditions.  Just remember that even though we may hate change, certain things will never change:

 

  • God still desires to have a close personal relationship with His greatest creation: men and women.
  • Humans brought sin into the world which put a vast expanse between God and us.
  • God sent His only Son to take the penalty for every sin we have committed and take them to the cross for us.
  • Jesus Christ was laid in a tomb because of my sin and yours.
  • One fact that never has changed and never will is that three days later CHRIST ROSE FROM THE TOMB!!!

 

Sure, we may not get to celebrate Easter the same way we always have, BUT...we should never forget WHAT we are truly celebrating.  We celebrate Christ's victory over death.  We celebrate Him bridging the vast expanse between God and us.  If you have not trusted Christ as your Savior, I hope you won't let this Easter season pass without doing so.

 

So, I started off talking about my reluctance to change my way of playing music.  The medium that I use to play music has changed; however, the music itself has never changed.  It is still the same no matter how I play it.  Likewise, God is the same today as He was for Abraham, Jacob, and Moses.  God does not change!  Just because your method of Easter observance may change this Sunday, don't forget to observe the greatest gift ever given.
