As Easter approaches we aren’t lost in the commercial drive of the season, with chocolates and Easter bunnies, instead Jon encourages us to remember Christ’s death on the cross. He argues that this remembering shouldn’t be limited to just once every year in Easter but rather should be a daily, yearlong routine.
Christ’s death on the cross should be remembered, his purpose in coming to this planet. It was by His death that we have been purchased and have moved from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light.
Kingdom was what Christ preached. He mentioned his Church only twice in scripture but then goes on to remark on His kingdom hundreds of times. Kingdom is what Christ preached, the coming of it, and its dominion over all things. This Easter we should remember what His kingdom is: not eating and drinking, that is to say earthly and common desires, but His kingdom is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Let’s pray we all partake of this kingdom. Amen.
