All Hallow's Eve

Today is Halloween. It is the eve of one of the greatest of all feasts in the Christian church...that of All Saints Day. All Saints Day is a feast celebrating the fact that those who have died in Christ are in fact alive in him! It celebrates all those who have gone before us, and in a way also us as fellow saints on earth.

It is perhaps apt to have a holliday preceding All Saints Day that shows evil creatures running around the world.....for that is indeed a picture of what life is like on earth. But at the rising of the sun, those who believed in the Son are raised....and they are victorious over death because Christ himself was also victorious over sin, death, and the power of the Devil.

Praise be to Christ + !

You know I've never thought about it like that. I've always struggled with the appropriateness of halloween, but that really gives me a whole new perspective to think about.
