Easter is my favorite holiday (not just because of the creme eggs, although they are a plus.) Easter is a celebration of an event that gives my life purpose and direction.
Without a loving Creator who cared enough to come walk the earth as I do and change my self-serving heart...I'd be in pretty sad shape.
Life would just be about getting and keeping and comparing and competing. Which I do some of anyway (and it doesn't make me happy.) But, it would be much worse.
Because of the empty tomb, I have a different perspective: God is greater than injustice, greater than suffering, greater than death. And certainly greater than me and my agenda.
With a God that powerful, nobody is taking Him down. So, I want to be on His team.
Therefore, I listen to what He tells me is important. How to best play this game of Life. Because I want to win.
That's why Easter is cool. It reminds me that God wins.
