"We Are Not Disposable"
Americans love Easter candy. We spend over $2 billion
on it every year. My favorite candy is M&M’s. The color from
the candy shell has no taste. It’s that milk chocolate that tastes so
good. There are over 400 million M&M’s produced every day!
M&M’s are available in red and green for
Christmas. Red, pink and white emphasizing Valentine’s Day. Orange
and black for Halloween. Pastel colors are designated for Easter. Somehow, that fails to capture the significance of Jesus’ resurrection.
God’s redemptive actions always exceed the boundaries of our
imagination. Yes, Easter is fun and exciting: Lilies, new clothes, family
gatherings, worship, music, eggs and chocolate bunnies all make for a wonderful
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is:
The central cosmic event
The turning point in history BC/AC
The most important day of the year
The victory over death, fear and inhumanity
And, the day meaninglessness was cancelled!
God has not left the entire created order unanswered in our
cries for salvation. We do not explain the resurrection, it explains
us. The power of the Risen Christ is at large in the world. We may
be biodegradable but not disposable to our designer.
