Easter is coming.
I love Easter.
The time with family. The candy. The oh-so-delicious-melt-in-your-mouth cookies that mom gets me every year. The Easter basket. The day off for Good Friday. Easter is awesome.
The best part of Easter though?
It’s all about Jesus.
It’s the love story.
It’s the romance. The intrigue. The victory.
Christ, the God-man, came to earth. He lived a perfect life. A life without sin.
He never lied.
He never gossiped.
He never wanted something someone else had.
He IS perfect.
How could He not be?
He died a horrifying death.
He was lashed.
He was spit on.
He was crucified.
But on Easter, He rose.
Victory over death. Victory over sin.
Easter, with it’s pretty pastel colors, yummy Robin’s egg whoppers, and delicious ham dinners has nothing on Jesus.
Jesus is the reason Easter exists, not the other way around.
