Easter Eggs and the Christian Easter

Easter Eggs and the Christian Easter

Every year, my wife Jessica makes Easter special for our family, especially our children. Usually, a family member or a dear friend visits our home; this year, it is my brother Douglas, his wife Danielle, and their two boys. Jessica makes each of our three children Easter baskets as a gift, and we always have at least one Easter egg hunt. 

This year will be no different! The Davis family will celebrate Easter by attending worship at Second Baptist Church, sharing a family meal, and opening Easter eggs found acquired during the traditional egg hunt.  

Have you ever wondered how the Easter egg ties into the Christian’s Easter traditions? For centuries, the egg has been a symbol of new life. Few visuals of new life are more incredible than seeing a chick break out of an egg to experience the world for the first time. As a baby chick breaks out of an egg, Jesus broke out of the tomb and conquered death! Because He rose from the grave, we can experience a new life by believing in Him. He is the Resurrection and the Life.

Easter reminds us that we can put the old life behind us and become a new creation by receiving the free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. “So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” - 2 Corinthians 5:17

WHAT NEXT: This Easter, as you crack open eggs (plastic or hard-boiled) or watch your children open eggs, think about Jesus breaking out of the tomb to conquer death, providing a way for us to spend eternity with Him. HE IS ALIVE! Hallelujah, Jesus is alive!
