Happy Easter to you and yours!
"Jesus had to die on the cross and shed His blood for us, so we could be brought
back into relationship with God. He was the final sacrifice. Through Jesus blood
being shed for us, our sins have been forgiven (washed away). Then, through His
resurrection (coming back to life) we, too, can be risen to new life in Him.
When we come to the Lord, He makes us new creations. We have Jesus resurrected
life in us.
Easter isn’t at all about Easter bunnies and Easter eggs as
such, though these things are nice to have at Easter time. I’ve heard it said
that the Easter egg represents 'new life' – as a chicken hatches from an egg. It
is okay to enjoy chocolate bunnies and Easter eggs at Easter time, but let us
not forget the real meaning of Easter."
