Emptiness…that’s a horrible, lonely and depressing word isn’t it. That’s why when we talk about an empty cross, an empty tomb at Easter time, it always seems slightly contradicting to be celebrating that emptiness.

However for once, emptiness is a positive thing to be celebrating as without the emptiness of Christ‘s cross and the emptiness of His tomb, we would not have spent the last few days celebrating Easter…as I said in The Most Important Event blog post last week, if there hadn’t been a resurrection there would be no Easter.

So while emptiness is normally associated with sad occasions, let’s make sure we don’t allow Easter to be a sad occasion, but instead let’s celebrate Christ’s resurrection this Easter and every Easter.
