Chickidies and Churches

I love these baby Chickens and with I could have brought them home from Oaxaca.  I could not find out how they made them so colorful, but I am sure it would be illegal in the US.  They would have made fun Easter gifts.

 
The Catholic’s in Oaxaca seem to celebrate Christ’s Crucifixion more than His resurrection.  They make and sell these figures of Jesus on the cross.
 
 It is sad for me to see the people worshiping Christ on the cross because they don’t seem to have the joy and hope that the Bible promises those who believe in the resurrection.
 Oaxaca is the second poorest state in Mexico with 57% of the children in rural areas experiencing stunted growth due to malnutrition.  There are people living in houses with dirt floors, no running water and no indoor restrooms.  Yet each village has a very big and elaborately decorated Church.  This Easter as you attend your church, gather with family for a scrumptious meal and fill your Easter baskets, don’t forget the reason for the holiday and say a prayer for those less fortunate.

What’s so Good about Friday?

For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.
Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

(Romans 5:17-21 ESV)

Christ died (on Friday) and rose on the third day (Sunday) that we might have life!  That’s the Good News!
