Resurrection Sunday is what we called Easter Sunday. When we think about Easter, bunnies and chocolate appear. Sorry little ones, it is not about them. It is however, about Jesus.
I know you can’t wait for eggs hunt and munching on your yummy delicious bunny. Auntie Eileen does not like to spoil your fun but, yes, it is about Jesus. Who is Jesus? He is the Son of God.
Why is Jesus so important?
Why is Easter all about Him?
But Jesus said, “ Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”Matthew 19:14
Guess what? Each and every little ones are important to Him. Therefore, Easter Sunday is about you, not the bunnies or even the chocolate. Listen up! Jesus loves you very much.
How much does Jesus love me?
Well, He loves you this much that He died on the Cross to save you. To save me from what? He died to save you from your sins (the wrong that we all do against God). We are not able to save ourselves.
Therefore, we need Jesus because He is the perfect man to do the job. God sent His Son Jesus to save us, not because we deserve being saved. God is a good God. He loves you.
Do you know, God creates you for Him? Sometimes, we do not know exactly how love works or how amazing it is to love with all your heart, soul and mind. Yet, God yearns for such love from you.
The Bible says
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has punishment. He who fears is not made perfect in love.1 John 4:18
Come to Jesus
Therefore, do not fear, come to Jesus. Auntie Eileen has one more good news to share with you. When Jesus died on the Cross, he was buried in a tomb. But, three days after, He was raised from the dead. He actually resurrected. Hence, we celebrate Resurrection Sunday.
Kids should have fun and enjoy some delicious chocolate bunnies. Just remember on this special day, Easter Sunday is not all about bunnies or chocolates, it is about the love of a man named Jesus who loves you so much that he gave his life in exchange for yours.
He is so powerful that even death cannot hold him down. Will you come to Jesus? This is what Easter is all about. Have a wonderful Easter everyone and stay safe! Auntie Eileen will see you soon.
