I’d love to really know… What does Easter mean to you?
Growing up it was about the easter bunny getting candy and hunting eggs. As I get older though, the Truth is about Jesus. It is so awesome to know how much we are all loved by God that he gave his son to us. Easter now is great and everyday gets better. Thank you Brad for this time, I am not the best with words and there is not enough space to keep on typing either. Easter is so much to me and without Jesus I am truly nothing. Thank you and looking forward to see what God has instore for us!!!!!
That no matter how awful cancer can be, my Jesus died a much worse death just so I can have life eternally. So thankful He did not stay in that grave and that He is still alive today!!!! I am so unworthy of it all but He loves me and all people. He is so AWESOME!!! Jesus thank you for your love, mercy, grace, and FORGIVENESS!! Help me to do the same to others.
With all the commercialism of the holidays it is easy to forget what the true reason for celebrating Easter is. With the easter bunny, chocolate, eggs, etc. I find myself slipping into that sometimes. The Lord always finds a way of reminding me tho. It is bitter-sweet most of the time for me. I feel a great joy that Jesus is alive and because of Him, I (an unworthy sinner) can have eternal life. At the same time I have sadness for the incredible pain, torture, and ridicule Jesus had to go through because I know I am unworthy.
Easter to me is the best time of year. It is a renewal of spirit and hope. Christ died on that cross for me and my sins. He rose on the third day. What could be greater than knowing He is at the right hand of God and knows my name. Easter means everything to me.
