On Easter it is so easy to get caught up in all things secular about this holiday. Even though we celebrate that way also, we celebrate something even BIGGER than the Easter bunny.
We celebrate our RISEN SAVIOR!
He died on a cross for all of our sins with no hesitation. Taking on all of our burdens as his own.
Three days later he rose from his grave and ascended into heaven to live for eternity with his Father.
Growing up one of my favorite songs put it best:
Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.
He really did pay it all for me and for you!
Happy Easter 2010!
May you find it full of love, family, friends and even the Easter Bunny.
But most importantly, I hope you find it full of Jesus Christ our Savior who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we might live in him and have eternal life forever.
