What's Easter to you? The Bible says, "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life" (John 3:16) I just want to say Easter is much more than a bunny with candy. Easter is all about the Son of God Jesus Christ. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. “God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.” Do you really understand what he did on that cross? He died on that cross paying for our sins. JesuI also rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His Father. He offers us the gift of eternal life -- of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me." God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name." You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior. So again I will ask "what is Easter to you"? The meaning of Easter is Jesus Christ's victory over death so we can live. His resurrection symbolizes the eternal life that is granted to all who believe in Him. Look again to the cross and I pray you see what Jesus has paid for your sins.
