Responding to Jesus

April 14, 2017

Today is Good Friday. In two days, Christians around jesus crossthe world will celebrate Easter, the day Jesus was resurrected. Some people will go to a service today to commemorate Jesus death and what it represents to their faith. Some people will go to a service on Easter to celebrate what Jesus’ resurrection means to their faith. But will that be the total of our “Easter Celebrations”?

A couple years ago, I preached a post-Christmas message asking the question, “How do you respond to baby Jesus?” Drawing from Matthew 2 and Luke 2, there were three appropriate responses:

  • The Shepherds saw baby Jesus and told others.
  • Simeon & Anna saw baby Jesus and worshipped him by celebrating.
  • The magi (wisemen) respond to baby Jesus by giving gifts.

As I reflect upon those responses to the baby king, seem to also be the best and most appropriate responses to the crucified and risen king also.

How will you respond to Jesus this Easter season?
