Signs of Easter
 

A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.

Matthew 16:4

America begins showing signs of Easter earlier and earlier every year. Plastic eggs for sale by the millions, chocolate eggs and bunny rabbits in every store, pastel colored Easter baskets and bundles of plastic green "grass" to fill them—the world's signs of Easter can't be missed. But today's signs of Easter are a far cry from the signs that proved the reality of the very first Easter morning.


Jesus told His detractors who had asked Him for a miraculous sign that they would see only one sign—the sign of Jonah, who spent three days in the belly of a great fish before being rescued from death. On the third day after Jesus' own death, He came out of the grave to give the world a sign it cannot deny. For a man to predict His own death and resurrection was something only God could do. The Gospel writers give us many proofs of His resurrection: sightings by witnesses, nail-scarred hands, a stone rolled away, and more. Truly, Jesus was—is!—alive.


As you prepare to celebrate Easter this Sunday, give thanks to God that your faith is not in vain—that Christ was raised for you (1 Corinthians 15:14).

The Easter story ends not with a funeral but with a festival.

John Blanchard

It took Thomas Jefferson about seventeen days to write the Declaration of Independence. J.R.R. Tolkien took considerably longer to write The Lord of the Rings. He wrote to his publisher in February 1938, indicating he had completed the first chapter; and another letter, dated February 1950, contained news that the last chapter was finished.
