God’s love doesn’t come with conditions or confinements; His love just is… It’s a force, too large to be marginalised and too bold to be capped. It tells us in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” When we look at this scripture and its connection to the celebration of Easter, how many people truly know how loved they are by God, and why it is that we celebrate this yearly tradition?
The media tells us that only half of Britons believe Easter is about Jesus.
But is this true? Wouldn’t it be interesting to find out what our friends, family, neighbours, work colleagues and our community really think about Jesus?
And WHAT IF, by just asking a couple of safe and easy questions, we trigger people to open their minds to what they truly believe and unlock the door to a conversation about faith? So here is the challenge for every single one of us! We have created a quick and easy survey,that everyone can use either via their mobile phone, tablet or on paper. Think of this as a tool for YOU to easily engage with those around you and discover how they view Easter.
We are collaborating with God on this project. We need to be encouraged that we are His children. God’s business is our business and His business is people. His business is that the lost would be found.
Sometimes we can be afraid to take God public for fear of offence, or of not having the right answers. This however, is our time to go for it, no shame, nothing can stop us, because He is with us, He is for us, He goes before us. And there really are no excuses because LITERALLY EVERYONE can ask someone what they believe about Easter – there is no offence and no right answer to give – BUT – who knows where those questions could lead? Don’t worry, that’s God’s job, and He will ALWAYS do HIS part, if we just do ours.
