Easter's Work

Gifts abound at Easter time.  Now, I can live with chocolate bunnies--chocolate anything really.  Perhaps we wrap our smaller gifts of candy, trinkets and pocket change in a variety of decorated plastic eggs.  And, of course, many of us gift ourselves with the perfect Easter outfit(s).

Those gifts are okay, but the gifts God has given us for Easter are far superior.  They are 1) the peace of God 2) the Spirit of God and 3) The mission of God.  Those are all the gifts we need.  What's best about those gifts is that they are given when we need them the most.  Jesus first offered them to the fearful disciples locked in a room.  Christ comes to our rooms, too, and offers us the same.

Where do you need peace?  That's where Christ shows up.
