Easter Sunday is always a crowded day in most protestant churches, and you see folks there who haven't been around since the previous Easter.
"going to church" is not what Christianity is about. Dressing up and
showing off new dresses, hair styles, the occasional hat ... nope. Eggs, candy, and bunnies?
It's about life. Our lives. It's about God's unconditional love for us. That love makes everything about our lives as believers new.
It's about forgiveness. God's forgiveness of our evil (yes, the e word!) natures. We are empowered to live our lives free from bitterness or regret, if we accept His forgiveness, which gives us the ability to forgive others.
It's about Jesus, and what He did for us. If you're a believer, you already know. If you're not, you can be.
God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were still
sinners, Jesus the Anointed One died for us." We don't have to make
ourselves acceptable; in point of fact, we cannot.
If we could, then
Jesus' death was for no reason.
But God accepts us the way we are, warts and all, because of what Jesus did. All we have to do is believe that.
