Happy Easter!

One of the most celebrated Christian Holiday… EASTER… what do you usually do during Easter? What is the significance of Easter in your life?

Posibleng sa iba, isa lamang itong holiday. Sa katunay, pinakahihintay ito kasi mahaba-habang holiday. Pwedeng maglamyerda ang buong pamilya. Pagkakataon na ito.

Pero habang tumatagal, mas nagiging commercial na ang Easter… just like any other holiday. To name a few commercialized holidays, Christmas, Todos Los Santos, Valentine’s Day, New Year, etc.  Every month naman merong occasion and you name it, there is something for it.

Easter is suppose to be for God. We commemorate not just Him being a hero but from delivering us from our sins. He gave us eternal life so we wouldn’t have to face death.

Sige, kahit di nyo pa napanood ang “Passion of Christ”… imagine-in nyo na lang. Kung nandun kayo nung time na tinotorture si Jesus, kahit alam ng lahat na wala syang kasalanan, pinigilan nyo ang mga Roman Soldiers.. pero ayaw nila paawat, instead they asked you “would you be willing to be beaten instead of Him?”.. tatanggapin nyo?

Marami ang nag-alangan. Kung tutuusin, di naman kelangan. Siya na nga ang pumuno nun eh. Tinanggap nya ang ganung torture para sa atin. Para di na natin danasin yun. Nang sa gayon, lahat tayo maging masaya kasama Nya.

Tingnan nyo yung mga movie na bagamat lihis man, sinasabing lahat ay may pagkakataong tumanggap ng kaligtasan – The Seventh Sign (1988 with Demi Moore) and The Gathering (2002 with Christina Ricci). Isa itong regalo. Libreng ibinigay para sa lahat. Ang kelangan nga lang natin gawin ay tanggapin.

Hindi ko maipaliwanag kung anong pakiramdam na alam mong nandyan ang Diyos para sa’yo. Nandyan sya para patnubayan, gabayan, bantayan, tulungan, alagaan, pangaralan, etc. Magulang mo, kaibigan mo, kasintahan mo, etc. yun ang papel nya para sa akin, pero higit pa sya dun.

Ngayong Easter, naisip ko… bagamat isa itong typical holiday para sa iba, it’s significant for me. It’s the time God saved all of us. And He still saves us. What is the significance of Easter to you?
