Celebrating This Easter Day

Encouragement Today

design-83

Today’s Encouragement is coming from the inspiration of our risen Savior. Today is Easter and in our society it is all to easy to get lost in the frilly dresses, pretty bonnets, freshly decorated eggs, and chocolate bunnies.

Now, do not take me wrong, we do both in our home. We have always given our daughter an Easter basket, but we taught her from the very beginning this is not the real meaning behind Easter.

We taught her that her risen Savior was crucified and risen three days later to save her and the rest of us from our sins. This is the true meaning behind Easter.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whosoever believes in him shall not parish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:16-17 (NIV)

So while the eggs and the chocolate bunnies are fun and entertaining, it is important that we do not forget the real meaning which is found in our Savior who was crucified and risen three days later in atonement for our sins.

It is my prayer this Easter Day that you find encouragement and hope that Christ is the center of your life because you have asked him into your heart and bowed before him seeking His forgiveness for your sins for this is where you will find the real message of this Easter Day.

Happy Easter from my home to yours.
