Easter is not about the Easter bunny, Easter eggs, Easter baskets or an Easter egg hunt.
EASTER IS ABOUT THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST.
(It’s also commonly referred to as Resurrection Day/ Sunday)
While we have our fun visiting family and friends…
We’ll remember the real reason why we celebrate today.
Matthew 28: 1-8
Now after the sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the sepulchre. 2: And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone, and sat upon it. 3: His appearance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow. 4: And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. 5: But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. 6: He is not here; for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. 7: Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. Lo, I have told you.” 8: So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
Jesus Christ has risen!
