What…no fog machine?!?

Perhaps I’m old-fashioned…maybe a little old school. I will readily admit that I am probably both, but is that a bad thing necessarily? As I sit and reflect on the holiness of this day, and I celebrate all that Jesus did for me, I am in awe of the story I’ve heard all of my life. It is amazing to me that Jesus, the son of God, became sin on that cross, so that I could be free. And even more amazing is that he was raised from the dead to fulfill God’s plan for my salvation. The enormity of those events bring me to my knees. It makes me wonder why people need more than that. Why the need for “entertainment”? Isn’t the message powerful enough to stand on its own? Do we need coffee and donuts and props and theatrics to be effective? The message of Christ crucified – Christ resurrected is bigger than any event in human history. It seems nothing we do to try and make it “cooler” or more exciting or more meaningful will ever come close to doing it justice. Christ died for us. Christ rose from the dead for us. That is more than our human minds can comprehend…shouldn’t it be enough for us?
