It's the day before Easter break, and the whole town's hoppin'! And a new attraction will draw a larger crowd than ever come Sunday--an elaborate Easter set for this year's play. And it's right downtown so all of Coleraine can see the Greatest Story Ever Told!
But a storm hits! And the set is demolished--the night BEFORE Easter. When it looks impossible to rebuild the set in time--the Morrison's are up for the challenge!
HOW ABOUT YOU
Do you have a problem sacrificing worldly stuff?

Your attitude should be the same of that as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to death--even death on a cross! (Phil 2:5-8).
Even though Easter only comes once a year, the message is timeless.
The truth of the resurrection should affect us every day of our lives.
We should have the attitude of sacrifice that Jesus had. We should be willing to give up what we really can't keep--the stuff of this world and its rewards.
That way, we CAN hang onto what we'll never lose: Salvation and the eternal reward that comes from a sacrificial attitude. Christ knew that His reward was NOT here on earth--but that is was in heaven with God the Father.
We need to follow His example and be willing to sacrifice for the wonderful blessings that await us in heaven.
