Put Jesus Back into Easter this Easter!
This should be the heart cry of every worship leader, indeed every Christian.
We live in a world that preaches political correctness to us every day, trying to remove Jesus and Christianity from Christmas, Easter and every holiday. We are labeled narrow-minded, conservative and bigotted, yet the Church is the one being attacked by so-called liberated and open-minded humanists!
This Easter, worship leaders, it is time for us to say enough is enough!
Let’s Put Jesus back into Easter Today!
There are many reasons we should put Jesus back into Easter.
The first is that people will come to church at Christmas and Easter time when they will refuse to darken the door of a church at other times of the year.
Let’s put Jesus back into Easter for those who need to hear the good news message of the Gospel. They are in the church for the day, so we should be able to lead people to the Lord in our worship.
The second reason is that our people need to realise that Easter, with all the hype, the chocolate and the bunnies, hot crossed buns etc., is still about Christ. Easter is about the incredible sacrifice that God made, sending His Son to die for our sins on a cruel cross. We as believers need to remember and honour Jesus Christ at Easter, not get sucked into the culture that our modern society thrusts upon us.
As worship leaders, we need to choose songs carefully and make sure that we put Jesus back into Easter this season. So listen to today’s podcast and make sure that we are pointing people to Christ in our music, not ourselves, not Church, not a denomination and definitely not bunnies, chocolates and eggs.
Worship Leaders, we can be the difference in bringing people to Christ this Easter, so let’s commit to putting Christ into Easter once again!
