I like Easter eggs as much as the next guy.

Any excuse to eat chocolate is good enough for me.

But Easter is about more than just eggs and chocolate and people dressed up in rabbit costumes.

It’s about Jesus.

Who loves us so much that He died on the cross.

Taking upon Himself the sins of the world so that we can be reconciled to the Father.

The ultimate, perfect sacrifice.

Giving us freedom from the mistakes of our past.

We’re not slaves anymore.

And that is why Christians celebrate Easter.

Because it’s more than just eggs.
