His Resurrection - Poem by Deidre Dixon

There is a day each year that is celebrated by many
They come out one of a few Sundays in the year dressed up all handsome and pretty
Some have hunts for eggs decorated with bright colors and designs
Some prepare large feasts with baked ham, all the trimmings and serve it with wine
Churches all over the place are packed with the saints and as well as the unsaved
Some of the children recite their speeches and some of them take part in plays
Other people don’t go to church at all; they do something that is really quite funny
They gather their children and go to the malls to see the “Easter” Bunny
It’s amazing how so many people will celebrate a day they know little or nothing about
But, when you try to share the truth about it they respond with anger and doubt
This day has nothing to do with bunny rabbits, eggs or getting all dressed up
It has a whole lot to do with Jesus Christ and what He saw when He looked into this cup
This cup was filled with the sins of the world, not wine, fruit juice or water
So Jesus went into a garden called Gethsemane, lay on His face and prayed to the Father
He said, “if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.”
The Son of God, the One so faithful and true, though innocent, against him they had a case built
This was just before they brought Him to be wrongfully judged, beaten and finally crucified
He was hung on the cross with no fault found in Him, where they mocked Him and pierced His side
They didn’t know what they were doing, so He asked the Father to forgive them before He gave up the ghost
But, then what happened three days later when they came to His tomb was what really mattered the most
Jesus lived then He died, went down to Hell, conquered death and the grave
He did all of this for love of mankind; so that you and I could be saved
So, on this day while remembering its meaning in your reflections
Remember that Jesus Christ is still alive and what we celebrate is His Resurrection!
