Get into the spirit of the holiday as well by wishing everyone you come into contact with a Happy Easter, coloring Easter Eggs and hiding them for kids or your friends or family to find, and of course, buying lots of candy or small gifts and putting it into Easter Baskets to give to kids. Easter is always a great, fun, festive and meaningful holiday.
Easter is the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. While all the candy, bunny rabbits, Easter Eggs and festive spirit makes us happy, it is our trust in our Father and His love that is the true gift.
Christians are secure knowing that Heaven is their destination when they die; because Jesus said He is the “Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one gets to the Father but through me.” Jesus also tells us that our Salvation is secure and can never be taken away, as only God Himself can judge the heart of a person.
Christians do not fear death, because we have eternal life given to us freely by Jesus Christ. Jesus told us that Salvation is a free gift, “thus none can boast”. Salvation in Christ cannot be bought, it cannot be earned, it cannot be rewarded, it is given freely to any and ALL that will accept Him as their Lord and Savior; no matter who they are.
No matter what religion they practice. No matter how rich or poor, no matter how successful or not, no matter what race, creed, sect or language they speak. It takes no more, and no less, but faith in Christ to become a child of God.
Here is a great speech by Billy Graham, speaking of the triumphant message that Jesus Christ gave to all who would hear His words and accept that they are Truth, the Way and the Life.
