When I asked my 6 year old son what he has learned about Easter he said “Easter Isn’t Just About the Eggs and Bunny, it’s About Christ’s Resurrection.”
My heart was happy knowing that there was a deeper meaning to Easter.
A deeper meaning that impacts all of us.
Christ’s atonement, His crucifixion, He suffered greatly for each one of us.
Because He loves us.
He had all power to stop his pain and suffering, and yet, He knew he had to endure the deepest and enduring pain and anguish… so that through His atonement we can have the chance to live with Him again.
And yes, we know our Savior was resurrected. He lives.
He continues to be there for us all if we but reach for him.
Yes Easter is much, much more than eggs and bunnies, it’s about remembering our Savior Jesus Christ. Remembering that he suffered for us all, and that He lives again.
Happy Easter to all!
And my hope is that we remember this often, not just on Easter.
