This week always gets me emotional when I think about Easter. It is an opportunity to ponder, reflect and be thankful for what Jesus did for all of us on the Cross over 2,000 years ago. Despite what is happening throughout our world, let us not allow the coronavirus to take the headlines of Christ. Christ is higher and greater than corona.
I was meant to travel to Malta this weekend with one of my favourite sisters, however, due to the coronavirus, the flight has been cancelled. I was looking forward to spending Easter at Malta for a change, as my Easter celebrations have always been in London. Nonetheless, I am grateful for the opportunity to see the Easter weekend in advance. I have been humbled, and despite all that is happening, there is still an opportunity to celebrate Easter everywhere.
I want to encourage you to not be put off by what is happening in the world today. Life is tough; that I know. Nevertheless, it shouldn’t have such power that we can’t endeavour to move on with life and reflect on what Christ did for us. When I think of the Cross, I can only humble myself with my knees bowed down, lifting up my hands and saying to Jesus, “thank YOU for taking my place”. When you look at your problems, you can’t understand or fathom the beauty of Easter, but when you look up to the Cross, that is where you gain strength and the ability to carry on in life.
Let this weekend cause you to rejoice, because had it not been for the Cross, nobody would be here right now. Don’t allow your circumstances to make you bitter or cause you to give up on your loved ones. Jesus had a large heart to care for all of us, and this weekend is an opportunity to express how much we love Him back. I will be watching The Passion of the Christ this weekend with my family, as well as celebrating Easter with my church family online.
Don’t allow corona to take the headlines of Christ. Christ is greater than corona. You have to believe it!
Enjoy this weekend to the fullest; don’t allow your emotions or feelings to get in the way. Your strength is in your praise.
Happy Easter Weekend ❤
