Springtime, colorful eggs and chocolate bunnies? Nope; that isn't what Easter is all about. The reason it has become that is simple. There is really convincing evidence Jesus did NOT rise from the dead. That evidence is the lives of countless millions of Americans living as if their faith were nothing more than a secular holiday. When we live like Easter is fiction we affirm the unbelief of those around us. If we could jut get a hold of the reality and truth of what we're celebrating this week this country and world would be turned upside down! I will be posting several good Easter evangelism ideas this week but wanted to encourage you, before we even get there, to determine in your heart to live like Easter is true - if we can get there, we won't be able to help but talk about Jesus!
