Looking Up

What do I remember about Easter. Of course I remember the Safari Rally that took place countrywide. I also remember those movies/ cinemas that were aired in the night. That movie machine and the sound it would make as we all gazed at the white bed sheet that acted as a screen. By the way this reminds me of that bronze snake that Moses made and the Israelites were ordered to look unto it once the dessert vipers striked their ankles. I think the whole looking up is significant of looking at the rugged cross and casting all our cares unto Him. The nightflies would of course be attracted to the screenlight and they would in turn display their own show of fireworks which would distract us from focusing on the cinema. That’s the same way that earthly things can take our focus from the one and only King of Kings.
The narrator would go on explaining what was happening in simple terms as if we couldn’t understand the movie just by watching. That movie/cinema was enough to make us steal each others coins/ mama’s change hidden in the then piggy bank/ mattress. I still remember how Peter ran of stick, ‘rīa kamuti’ when he heard of the good news of His rising.
As I think about that old rugged cross and the debt it paid for me, I can’t help but sing these Chris Tomlin lyrics:
‘Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole? Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll? The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave. He was David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave Is He worthy? Is He worthy? Of all blessing and honor and glory Is He worthy of this? He is.
