Hello Sweet Friends,
What is Easter?
There is a lot of confusion regarding what Easter Sunday is all about. For some, Easter Sunday is about the Easter Bunny, colorfully decorated Easter eggs, and Easter egg hunts.
Most people understand that Easter Sunday has something to do with the resurrection of Jesus, but are confused as to how the resurrection is related to the Easter eggs and the Easter bunny.
Biblically speaking, there is absolutely no connection between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the common modern traditions related to Easter Sunday.
Easter is a day when Christians celebrate the resurrection of the Lord, Jesus Christ. It is typically the most well-attended Sunday service of the year for Christian churches.
Christians believe, according to Scripture, that Jesus came back to life, or was raised from the dead, three days after his death on the cross. As part of the Easter season, the death of Jesus Christ by crucifixion is commemorated on Good Friday, always the Friday just before Easter.
Through his death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus paid the penalty for sin, for all who believe in him will receive eternal life.
I must admit that even though Easter bunnies and Easter eggs have no connection with the resurrection of the Lord it is fun for kids and adults too. I don't see anything wrong with decorating and celebrating the most wonderful day of the year which it the day our Lord rose from the dead.
I want to wish each and every one of you a very Happy Easter.
May God bless you always.
