Today is Easter Sunday. What does this day mean to you? When someone says Happy Easter to you, what comes to your mind? Easter Bunnies and chocolate candy or the day that our savior, Jesus Christ, rose from the grave. Over the years I have come to realize that a lot of our holidays are celebrated for the wrong reasons. I personally am trying to find the truth behind the holidays.
Easter is one of the most important days of the year. A day we should celebrate every day of the year, for without our Lord rising up from the grave, we would have been lost forever. He overcame death to die for our sins, and now sits at the right hand of GOD and rules over everything.
In Mark 10:32-34 Jesus for tells of his coming death and resurrection. In Mark, chapter 16, it speaks of the resurrection of Jesus and the events of that day. I hope that everyone will read this chapter today, and truly celebrate the real reason for Easter. There are other books in the bible that also tell of this day. Try to find them if you can. When you eat the pretty colored eggs, think about this, that part of the celibration comes from the Romans worshiping their sun god. They would have the temple maidens impregnated to give birth at the same time. The babies were then dyed pretty colors, and then sacrificed to their sun god.
I am not saying you shouldn't eat the boiled eggs and chocolate candy, but do it because you enjoy it, not because it is Easter. Search your heart and find out what Easter truly means to you.
