Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
Do you understand the reason behind the resurrection? and the benefits it has for you? Jesus Christ died for your sins, so that we too may join him in paradise. People cry and are sadden but they don’t understand that this is a yearly rebirth to repent, to clean our souls, our home and give thanks. For we have been given an opportunity in which we should rejoice. This is the time to really do some spring cleaning not just physically but spiritually.
Spring cleaning is essential for every christian, when we praise the lord in the morning and welcome him to our house like any other guest, are we welcoming him into a clean environment? Do we put much emphasis in having him as a guest as we do any other human being? This is the time to clean your household and in prayer welcome him into your home. Let him know that his only son’s sacrifice was not in vain. He is and forever will be you special guest, treat him as such.
Now let’s take a look at other aspects of your life that might need some spring cleaning. Are you living modestly or frugally? Are you wearing the same church dress to church but rather invest in a new outfit to go out with your friends or a date? There is a differences between looking good and being gratuitous. One can simply put together a nice women's suit, a nice delicate church hat and look good but some need a fur coat, five gold rings, and need to pull up in a Mercedes. The lord doesn't forbid us from enjoying what we earned; I am sure he is proud to see you praises him in your new Ladies Church Suit. We just have to live modestly, give to the poor, help those we can, and understand the materialistic wealth is just of this earth. Spiritual wealth is the most important! Amen!
Last but not least, cleanse your spirit from guilt, believe in the mercy of god and practice the art of forgiveness. Take a good look at the way you are when you speak of those who have done you wrong, your body gets aggravated and your blood pressure elevates. It brings you no good to hate or live in anger of something that has already taken place and cannot be undone. This Easter Sunday cleanse your spirit of hatred and grudges.
Let us know how you plan to spend your Easter Sunday and if you have any spring cleaning rituals and don’t forget to share this blog with all you friends. Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
