Easter is not For Sale

empty_tomb_1I was standing in line in a store recently when I heard this phrase over and over again on a closed-circuit television, “Get more Easter for your dollar.”

It struck me that this national chain apparently knows nothing about Easter.  Easter is not for sale in any store.  Easter is not a commodity that one buys.  Easter is not something that one brings home in a shopping bag.

Easter is the celebration of that glorious day when Jesus Christ rose from the grave and left His tomb empty to show His power over sin, death, Satan, and the grave.  Without Easter, the resurrection of Christ, Christians would have no hope of eternal life!

The advertisement in the store, therefore, amounted to the following message: “Get more resurrection of Christ for your dollar.”  How godless can our society become?
