A Time to Show What/Who You Are?

Hey Gang....

Let me start out by saying how sorry I am that I've not been able to post much anything here lately. But the production of Eye Witness: Unknown God, has literally been consuming my life.

In fact, I just wrapped up the principle artwork on the project by completing the coloring yesterday. So the major hurdles have been cleared and now all that's left is to do the lettering and final editing. So we're still on schedule for a later June, early July release. I'll start posting more regular information and thoughts once pre-production begins to wrap up. Promise!

That being said let me share a few thoughts about Today....Easter Sunday, or ressurrection day, as I like to call it*:

To me, this seems like the holiday we should be celebrating above all others, (as opposed to Christmas), since as Christians it is at the core of what we are all about.

Sure Jesus birth into the world is significant, but his death, (Good Friday) and rebirth, (Easter), are what we are all about. Without them, Jesus would have been just another prophet...not the Son of the Living God, whom walked the earth and helped us to know God, because he was God.

It's Jesus ability to overcome death, (which was witnessed by the way, in over 500 separately reported incidents all around Palestine, over a 40 day time period), that separates him from every other Holy Man or figure, in every other religion. So this event should take on massive importance, (like in the same type of level Islam celebrates their holy week in Mecca, with hundreds of thousands of people taking to the streets in every city in the world where the Church exists).

But when it's all said and done...the public display of worship is just that! Jesus talked about it in fact, that men who worshipped primarily on the street corners were the ones to be weary of, since they were doing it for man, rather than for God. So, as a spiritual person....yes, attending corporate Easter worship at your local church is important, especially in Fellowship with your brothers in Christ...but more important is your personal worship this weekend. I worship God and especially his son Jesus with a personal fervor during this time, that rivals Islam in their shows of public prayer, in compassion shown to everyone I come across, and in trying especially hard to honor Jesus this weekend with a sacrificial act for someone in need. For our love and compassion will show who (and what) we really are.

As Christians we all should hold these qualities within our hearts year-round, but especially during thise three day period... the most important of days in the history of mankind.
