The Easter break is usually a long holiday spanning from Good Friday to Easter Monday (Galilee day). It is a time to be spent with family and friends. Fun loving folks plan picnics and many outdoor activities. But in the midst of all these fun, I recommend time for introspection. Suggested pieces for introspection ~ watch the films : “The passion of Christ” and “Elysium”
My idea of introspection isn’t to make you cry because Jesus was beaten, battered and killed or for the sufferings that has been depicted in tangible dramatic forms that one can relate with. I’m saying pause and ponder on the state of the world as it is today, what Christ said about it and the future: the high level of insecurity, poverty, the wars, terrorism all over the globe, conflicts (ethnic, religious, tribe, families), the divorce rate, nations fighting nations, the incurable diseases, wickedness in high places, the health insurance chip, the earthquakes, the tornadoes and endless list of happenings.
It’s okay to believe Jesus died for the sins of the world, it’s okay to believe Jesus is one of the prophets, it’s okay to even believe Jesus was a good person! Whatever your belief is, put it on line, check, check again and cross check and be sure it can withstand what is yet to come.
The coming of Christ isn’t a mirage, it is real and it will only be a fulfillment of the principle of sowing and reaping for Christ himself and for His people that he is coming for.
If you are still wondering what this is about please watch: “The passion of Christ” and “Elysium”
