An Easter egg. Yes, Easter is so much more than an Easter egg filled with all kinds of candy inside.
Entertaining the idea of the Easter Bunny. Yes, it's so much more than that!
Easter baskets and the goodies they are filled with. While the goodies that fill the Easter basket are often good, Easter is even more than that.
Easter is about the cross and the One who hung there. It is about our opportunity for salvation. It's about the greatest gift that we have ever been given, if we only choose to accept it. As we celebrate Easter today, with all of the good things in our lives...family, food, Easter eggs filled with treats, baskets filled with goodies, and so on and so forth, let's just stop for just a moment and reflect on what it's all about! Easter is about Him, our Salvation, our Jesus. Yes, Easter is about life eternal, if we will only choose it!
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? -John 11:25-26 (KJV)
25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” -John 11:25-26 (ESV)
