What Does Easter Mean?

Jesus had to die and shed His blood so we could be brought back into relationship with God. He was the final sacrifice. It is by Jesus blood our sins have been washed away. Then through His resurrection (coming back to life), we too can be risen to new life in Him. When we come to the Lord, we are new creations. We have Jesus resurrected life in us.

Easter isnít at all about Easter bunnies and Easter eggs as such, though these things are nice to have at Easter time. Iíve heard it said that the Easter egg represents new life Ė as a chicken hatches from an egg. It is okay to enjoy chocolate bunnies and Easter eggs at Easter time, but let us not forget the real meaning of Easter.
