Easter, What About Those Eggs

 

     The egg has a hard shell. It is full of good healthy stuff. Even the plastic eggs have yummy sweet stuff inside

     Now open the egg and remove the good stuff. Now you have an empty shell. What is that?

     Jesus died on the cross. Was buried in a tomb. Three days later He came back to life and came out of the tomb.

     The eggshell, be it the real egg or the plastic egg, represents the tomb. While Jesus was in the tomb the tomb was full of good stuff because Jesus is the One Who died on the cross for our sins. When we open the egg, the good stuff comes out. That represents Jesus coming out of the tomb on Easter Morning, we also call it Resurrection Morning because that is when Jesus was resurrected from being dead and came out of the tomb alive. Because Jesus died on the cross for our sins, came back to life and came out of the tomb, if we submit to Him He will forgive us then we get to go to Heaven and live with Him forever. He will also help us in living our life now so we can have a much happier life because we won’t be getting into trouble because we won’t be doing the wrong things. This is really something to celebrate and we do that in two ways. One way is to go to church every Sunday like His disciples did and live for Him, and the another way we celebrate what Jesus did for us is to decorate the eggs that represent the tomb Jesus was buried in and came out of alive.

     Jesus tells us in John 14:6 “… I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the  Father except through Me.” As Jesus said, He is the only way to get to Heaven. He did not say He is one of the ways. All you have to do is admit to Him in prayer that you are a sinner in need of a Savior. Then ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins and tell Him that you want Him to be your Lord and Savior. If you pray like that and really mean it from your heart then you are saved, born again, then Jesus promises that you will be with Him in Heaven. This does not mean that you will never sin again, but it does mean that you will not be like you were. It also means that you won’t want to do the wrong things you used to do.

     You will now want to go to church and learn what God tells us in the Bible, which is His book. So, wherever you live you need to find a good Bible believing, Bible teaching church that will help you learn what God tells us in the Bible, which is His Word to us.
