Why Easter and Resurrection So important


   

We enjoy and celebrate Easter every year. There are many forms of celebration in many cultures like Easter bunnies and Easter eggs. The celebrations were also mixed with local cultural celebrations like folk dance and burning of effigies (Ex: Latin America). Easter is definitely a time to rejoice. The cultural celebrations and gatherings are a very important part of Easter, at the same time, it should not dilute the true spirit and reason.

Easters marks the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The resurrection is closely linked to afterlife i.e what happens after death? Interestingly, most of the religions accept one or other form of afterlife. They also agree there is some form of connection in the afterlife based on the quality of life on the current life. In other words, the widely accepted worldly religious belief system is that soul of mankind never dies, but it takes different form(s) post-death.

The result of not believing in afterlife brings a thought that life begins and ends in the earth and there is no moral consequence for our actions. It leads to a fearless and bold social behavior.

If we do believe in the afterlife, it's important to understand what is a resurrection. The definition of resurrection is “One dies and raises up to live forever”. Resurrection put a strong emphasis on perishable body and everlasting soul. In other words, human soul ones formed in mother’s womb never dies and programmed to live forever.

We celebrate Easter to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Bible says, Jesus is the resurrection and life and the one who believes in him will live, even though they die (John 11:25). There is a hope of resurrection for mankind because of Christ’s resurrection (1 Cor 15:20-22).

If there is no resurrection of Christ then everyone dies in Christ are lost and the purpose of Christian faith and living is completely lost (1 Cor 15:32). On the other hand, It is only through Christ’s resurrection we get everlasting life. The promise of God on everlasting life (John 3:16) gets fulfilled only through Christ resurrection.

Easter gains lot more significance since it so personal to us and our eternal life. It gives assurance when we die to our sins through Christ’s, we raise along with him through his resurrection (Romans 6:8,9) and enter everlasting life. When we celebrate Easter next time along with our friends and families, let's take time to remember Christ’s supreme sacrifice on the cross and his resurrection, which offers eternal life to our soul.
