One Word

You know what’s great about Easter?  Easter is only about one thing.  Not really one thing.  More it’s one word.  One Person.  Jesus.

It’s not like Christmas where you have gifts and parties and snow to think about.  Oh sure you’ve got dyeing eggs and hiding eggs and the Easter bunny.  Some try to tell you it’s really a pagan holiday, a celebration of spring.  But really it’s only about one thing, one word, one Person and you can’t escape it.  It’s about Jesus.

This seems especially important to me this year because we have gotten so caught up in other things, other words.  Homosexuality, gun ownership, welfare, government spending.  In  all of that it seems that Jesus has dropped out of the conversation.

Then Easter comes and you can try to ignore it.  You can try to change the subject.  You can try to pretend otherwise.  But when it comes down to it Easter is only about one thing, one word, one Person.




About Angus Lewis

My wife and I lived our whole lives in Arkansas until ten years ago. We moved to the Kansas City area in 2011 (a job change). That was the reason for the 'From a Far Country' title. Our children and grandchildren were in Arkansas. Six months ago we sold our house and bought one in Sherwood, Arkansas and my wife moved back down here. Two weeks ago I retired and moved back too. (I'm probably going to try to find something part time to keep me out of trouble.) So maybe the 'From a Far Country' title is not so much of a fit anymore. But I think I'll stick with it. I'm still not home. Not yet. The Bible says we are all strangers and pilgrims here. Our real home is with God and some day we'll be there. We'll be home.
