So it's Easter Sunday today and I'm encouraged again to share. By the way, I found that when I've something in my head, I must blog it out immediately or else I would just let it go and you guys won't get to read what's in my head.
Ok. So what is Easter Day to you all? Hmm, well, Easter egg and Easter bunny, these are quite significant items on Easter Day huh. But to me, I never know about what's Easter Day also before I came to know Christ.
Today I'm gonna share a little bit about what I know about Good Friday and Easter Sunday before and after I came to know Christ. Just so you know this is my second year celebrating these significant events, praise the Lord for that.
Like I've shared before, I only know Jesus by His name before I am found. So when I only know such a great person by name, for sure I won't be able to know about Good Friday and Easter Sunday. N because Good Friday is not an holiday in peninsular Malaysia and Sunday is surely a holiday, I'm not even alert that these significant day existed. Lousy me I know.
So after I came to know Christ. I spent my first year of Good Friday and Easter Sunday back in KPC. There was a Good Friday Night Service in KPC last year and I attended, not proper thing happened there as I'm not alert of "What I should do" and "What I should not do" as a Christian that time. I partake the Holy Communion where it was suppose to be received by people who have been baptized only. Thank God I was not persecuted, just joking. But that's how I learn more about Christianity and therefore I really praise God for what He had done in my life. For Easter Sunday, I attended the Sunday Service I went giving Easter egg at Eng Ann. Overall I know what these days are but I did not take it to the heart.
This year around, I'm at Sarawak and it's holiday here, praise God for that. I rested enough and prepared myself physically because I'll have a half night prayer meeting going on in church that night. Don't know how it'll work but 4 hours of prayer meeting just worried me because I'm afraid I might fall asleep half way praying. That night, a video was shown, an animated cartoon of how Jesus Christ was persecuted, suffered and nailed on the cross. Its really sad to see it because I respect Jesus a lot and when someone I respect is going through those suffer, I felt the pain too.
Next day, joined Lifegroup with the brothers and was asked "What is Good Friday and Easter Sunday to you before and after you came to know Christ". Everyone have to share their thoughts and I was the last to share. As the other brothers are sharing, all the picture in the video flows into my head. When it my turn to share, I told the brothers about the video that's in my head and say "God has given me too much, so much that I can't give back. Good Friday and Easter Sunday to a day to remind us of how Jesus has died on the cross for our sin, so that we can be set free and have eternal life." As I share, eyes and throat felt uneasy because it's really sad to have all the image in my head. But again, I'm really be reminded that what God has done for us. In other way I tell myself I must give more to God, even though it's impossible to give back everything but I want to give Him more.
Today, its Easter Sunday and praise God because He has brought a lot of new faces to church. To know more about Him and to understand more about Easter Sunday. Praise God for the new faces because the seed have been sow and there might be time where the seed will grow to shine for Him.
For myself, I just want to declare here that there's never one moment that I'm sad or blame God for bringing me into this family of God. Because of the grace and mercy I'm here and I'm who I am today. I really have the urge to grow super fast spiritually but I think God has His time and plan for me and I'm gonna keep persevere on till the day my purpose is reveal to me.
So that's all from me, its random, its not drafted, its just thought in my head so its messy but thank you for reading up till here. I hope my sharing can encourage you a bit. Below are three things that I've learned during today Sunday Service. If you are interested in knowing more about what behind these three statement, do let me know so that I'll be able to explain to you in detail.
1. Its never too late for miracle.
2. Its never too late to start believing.
3. Its never too late to start over.
Blessed Easter Sunday to you all.
Thanks a lot for reading and I really appreciate your time.
May God bless you and your family members.
