It's not the eggs, the bunnies, the adorable kids in their Easter outfits sitting in Texas bluebonnets (though I do LOVE that!!)...it's the fact that because of 3 days in our history...because a man, a blameless, sinless man, was born, healed people, loved people, taught people, died for people and ultimately saved us all.
I'm a child of God. Christ died for me, for my sin, for your sin and I live my life with hope and assurance because of His sacrifice. Easter is about the celebration not just that Jesus died for my sin, but that he rose from the dead and is alive! I'm saved from my sin because he died. But I am filled with hope because he is alive!
This video is amazing (and short). Take the time to watch it. It's a short clip from a pastor in Philadelphia and they've set in clips from the Passion.
