Katrina's Musings (Easter Packs)

It's "Easter Pack" season again. On the days leading up to Easter, I use "Easter Packs" as an evangelism tool to share the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each "Easter Pack" contains a gospel tract, a note written by me, and a couple pieces of candy, all packaged in a Ziploc bag with a flower sticker on it.  As I'm running my errands, I hand one to the attendant at the counter and say, "Happy Easter! This is for you." It's that easy. I encourage you to give this idea a try on the days leading up to Easter.

 This year's "Easter packs" are pictured below.






Here's the text from the note I included in each pack:

Did you know that Easter is about more than colored eggs and candy? Easter is celebrated because it is the day that Jesus rose from the dead. His life and death were predicted (in the Bible) hundreds of years before he was born.

In the book of Isaiah, it reads, "Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows, yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned--every one-- to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity [sin] of us all." (Isaiah 53:4-6).

I have provided for you a gospel tract with a little more information about this event in history and its ramifications. I simply ask that you consider this information today and ask yourself, "Is it true?" If it isn't true, then reject it. If it is true, then it demands a response.

Thank you for taking the time to read this today. Happy Easter! May it be your best one ever.
