The Impact of Easter Sunday

This article was featured in the April 2023 edition of The Baptist Courier. 

Historically, Easter is the single most important holiday in the life of the Christian Church. But it is far more than a holiday; it is a Holy Day. As the Apostle Paul wrote, “for I delivered to you first of all that which I received: that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,” (1 Corinthian 15:3-4). He goes on to say, “And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is in vain and your faith also is vain,” (15:14).

As we gather on Easter Sunday, remember the impact of the resurrection of Jesus is not confined to a one-day celebration. The risen Christ is our motivation for evangelism, missions, discipleship and every other aspect of the Christian life. Typically unsaved and unchurched people are more open to an invitation to worship on Easter than any other time of the year.

Let this serve as an encouragement to every South Carolina Baptist to invite others to worship. However, don’t just stop there. Take this opportunity to share the hope of the Gospel found only in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Let’s pray God will use this Easter season to share Jesus. Many of the four million South Carolinians who are lost are waiting for our invitation!
