Christians all over the world and also some non Christians celebrate Easter. The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave, Jesus death demoralised his followers but after three days a miracle occurred. Jesus rose from the death and his cowardly followers proclaimed his resurrection, a fact that changed the entire course of history.
This is Easter season. The message of Easter is centred on Jesus Christ in relation to the cross, the blood and the power of Jesus Christ, He humbled himself in obedience to God and paid the prize He did not owe by being killed like a common criminal. God elevated Him and gave him a name above all names that at the name of Jesus Christ every knee should bow, in Heaven and on earth and under the earth and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the father (Phil 2: 8-11).
The message of the cross is foolish to those who pave their ways for destruction. God has made the wisdom of this world to look foolish knowing that they will never know Him through human wisdom.
Proverbs 3 verse 5 says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him. And He shall direct your path.”
As a wife (mother) this period is a time for sober reflection. A lot of you are no longer humble to your husbands as the Bible instructed that wives should be humble to their husbands in return and husbands should love their wives.
Most women have taken up the leadership role of the family which is against the word of God.
Their husbands bed are no longer warm enough. They commit adultery and are seen in every social gathering, they are no longer house wives, their maids resume their duties in the home leaving their husbands in sorrow and pain.
Proverbs 14:1 says “The wise woman builds her home, but the foolish pulls it down with her hands.”
Return back to Bethlehem and do not be wise in your own ways, allow the Lord to plan your home. Be faithful to your husband as the head of the home. Show good example and allow your children to emulate your good ways.
Husbands are not left out in this. As some of you are keepers of widows. Yes this ones have no one to warn them. In the process you take care of the widows and their children, forgetting to live up to your responsibilities in the home. Your wife and children suffer, you cannot afford to buy pencil for your children but you father the widow’s children.
This period is a time for sober reflection. Come back to your Bethlehem and be a responsible father and husband.
The cross is the centre of history and the centre of mankind. Come to Jesus Christ, He will never fail you. He will help your unbeliever, washing you with his blood, taking away every sinful nature in you. Well mothers, will I say women generally, you must not fail to prepare for Easter.
Guests, relations, friends etc. will visit your homes. Prepare fully depending on the type of food you give to them and drinks. Wish you all the best of the season.
Celebrated a successful. Easter.
