Easter is a time Christians celebrate the rising of Jesus Christ from the dead, at least that is what it used to be about but as of today it’s a holiday and vacation to some people that break off from work and spend time with family and friends.

Easter has seized being about true worship and communion with God for sparing his only son for humans but it’s now a time to relax and get stress free from all the tensions of work and school.

According to an Easter message by the Arch bishop of Uganda last year, Stanley Ntagali urged people to celebrate Easter by going to church and worshipping the lord, that it was a time to repent and make homes, school, and business places more enjoyable and suitable to glorify God who gives the greatest gift of salvation through his son Jesus Christ.

Resurrection is the basis of everything Christians believe. Christ’s death allowed Christians to be united with God, it also gave hope that they too will live again even after death.

 “And if Christ has not been raised, then your faith is useless and you are still guilty of your sins” (1 Corinthians 15:17)

Boniface Byamukama from Mbarara Church of Christ says Easter is still a time of celebrating Jesus’ resurrection because most people go to church first thing in the morning then later in the day reunite with their families.

He adds that people in the village celebrate Easter basing on its true meaning of the resurrection of Jesus Christ but for others in towns it’s a vacation and a break from work, people often pray for the blood of Jesus to be shed upon all they do, any activities they are carrying on that day simply because Easter is not just a break but a celebration for what, salvation Jesus left for Christians.

Clara kwikiriza a member of Watoto Church says that few people celebrate the true meaning of Easter but rather take on family vacations which is also important but having Christ at the center of everything is the initial and number one priority on Easter.

Easter is still about celebrating the resurrection of Jesus but very few people celebrate the spiritual part of it, many look at family time.

Family bonds are made tight on such days but that does not justify the fact that we are to forget the initial reason why these days exist, Clara adds

Christians should celebrate Easter more than Christmas because Jesus gave up himself as a living sacrifice, died and rose again so that we are saved. Grace Barongo from Watoto Church says

God is holy and cannot co-exist with sin “for the wages of sin is death…” no amount of religious practice or good deeds can balance out our sinfulness and make us holy.

 It is not about doing religious things but rather accepting the righteousness God has provided through Jesus Christ, she adds

“Suffered under Pontius Pilate was crucified died and was buried. He descended to the dead and on the third day he rose again” this is the true meaning of Easter which Christians should celebrate.
