What does Easter mean to me

Easter to me is more than cute little bunnies and eggs made of chocolate.  Easter to me is more than a day to feast on ham and celebrate spring.   Easter to me is more than cute new spring dresses and suits.  Easter to me is more than a Sunday to dress up and go to church.

Easter to me is a celebration of love.  It's a day to remember the most love filled act ever done for me (and for you).  You see God is crazy about me (you too).  He loves me (and you) so much that He couldn't bare the thought of eternity with out me (or you) so He gave His one and only son so that I(we) might have a life eternal with Him.  That when my days (yours too) on this earth come to and end, I (you) will be greeted in paradise and get to live there for all eternity with Him.

I am a good person.  No matter how good I am though, I can never measure up to God's standard of perfection.  To compensate for my imperfection, God sent Jesus who was perfect and He took the penalty of my sin on Himself, dying a brutal death on the cross.  Then He overcame sin and death and miraculously rose from the dead.   

This video may be a little hard to watch but it is a good picture of the reality of what happened. The whole time He was thinking about you (and me) and this act of love is one that no one can ever replicate
