Easter is onte of the major Christian celebrations. Then we celebrate the resurection of the Saviour, Who died on the cross for us, sinners, as He took our sins and shed His precious blood for us. God cleans us from sins and heals us by it.
Jesus was innocent, sinless, humble, didn't return with wrong. He was so humble that He allowed to be crucified - the Pious for unrighteous, the Holy for the unclean. But at that time the Israeli didn't realize what they had been doing and some of them, the bigger part, couldn't acquainted with Christ's coming to Earth. He has come with aim to expiate our sins and save us, as man is sinful since Adam and Eve have commited a sin. Man doesn't deserve salvation, but because of the great God's grace and blessing has a chance to be acquited through faith and to be in God's kingdom with his Creator. Man can be saved solely and only by faith in God's Son, Jesus Christ, but not by his good acts.
"After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you." So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. "Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him."(Mathew gospel, chapter 28, verses 1-9). Upper verses describe Jesus's resurrection. The angel read the first rise sermon, which says: "He is not here; he has risen."
We, the people, should be happy for all the Lord has done for us. We should thank Him for the chance He gave us, namely - to be with Him in His heavenly kingdom. We must not forget that Christ has conquered death on the cross.
Today as if most people emphasize on traditions - eating, drinking on the celebration. Of course, most people in the celebration morning go to church. Traditions are not a bad thing, but as to me it should be emphasized on the event, which has took place 2000 years ago and isn't only for celebrating with eating and drinking. We must a little remember about Jesus' life, about His resurrection, and to thank Him about everything He has done for us.
