Last March 27, we've had the privilege of celebrating Easter during sunrise at the beach! How amazing is that? Actually, I've been planning to post this earlier, but I was obviously running out of time to do so. So here, I just wanted to share a little something about what actually happens during Fellowship's Easter Sunrise Service.
Thankfully, there have been some selfless people who managed to decorate the place really early in the morning, when everything was still dark. It's just amazing how the beach looked like. A stage made up of sand, and of course, this cross right here to your left. Before the cross had been this beautiful, it was first empty. Just wood and some metal thingy that would hold the flowers later on. This cross symbolizes just how beautiful Easter day is.
Imagine a life so empty, so dull, so boring and colorless? In short, a life without meaning. Imagine that kind of life where everything around you is negativity, pride, selfishness and greed? Imagine how you would finally end up with all those ugly things that weigh you down? If I imagine what my life would be like that, nope. I wouldn't even give it a try because my life is just messy. But guess what, Jesus changed all that. As in He completely gave no power to those sins that pull you down. And death, finally, has no power over you. And how did that ever happen? Jesus' death. Simple.
Because of Jesus' death on the cross, we are fully assured that we wouldn't end up with messy, terrible lives. And not that just His death, but also because of His resurrection that made things even more beautiful and meaningful. God is good! God is great! The decision to believe that fact is completely up to you now. Jesus — He did His part to finally prove to you that He loves you more than ever, and that no amount of sins (bad things we do) could ever separate you and me from Him — not even death.
I live an ordinary life; striving and making it work in the giant sandpit aka Dubai. My life isn't perfect (I wish it was!) But I guess there's something about the imperfection in my journey that makes it worth the write and share. I believe that we don't have to have everything figured out because if we do, a lifetime won't be enough...
