As a mum I understand the pleasure of treating my children to easter eggs, but we all know it’s about Jesus. 😀
They understand Easter’s true meaning in that God sent his only begotten son to save mankind from sin.
They understand that the momentary pleasure of the egg cannot replace God’s salvation plan.
We celebrate Easter because, “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16 (NLT). Now we all know, no parent, however loving can give that!
The Hope of the Resurrection
So, gift your precious child and indeed family the best Easter gift ever, introduce them to the Saviour of their soul. That way even after death you’ll see them again.
13 And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.
15 We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. 17 Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. 18 So encourage each other with these words 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (NLT).
Now, wouldn’t you say that was far better than just an Easter egg?
