When did bunnies make an appearance during Easter?
Instead of focusing our attention on Jesus Christ and His gift of eternal life to us, we focus on chocolate, eggs and bunnies. I’ve never really understood the connection…I know, I know! There is no real connection. It’s just another easy way for businesses to make a little more money and the devil to distract us from what Easter really means.
Jesus came down to earth to save us from our sins. He said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.” John 11:25, 26.
Christ freely sacrificed himself so that we could live eternally with Him.
There is true joy when we embrace the gift of life freely given by Christ. Accept Him and His free gift of life to you. During Holy Week, let your focus be on worshipping and thanking our Lord and Savior for his sacrifice, His resurrection and for His deep all-encompassing love for us.
Go ahead! Hunt for eggs, eat the chocolate and hug on the bunnies but remember…the tomb where Jesus was laid, was empty when the stone was rolled away! He LIVES!
