There is this giant inflatable Easter bunny down the street from my house. The Easter bunny is holding an Easter Egg that has to be almost as tall as I am. This is no small bunny!
Seeing this giant inflatable bunny started me thinking. That bunny is huge and really makes a statement in my neighborhood. It’s hard to miss his huge floppy ears or massive feet when you’re going by him. However, there is someone who made an even bigger statement than the massive Easter bunny my neighbors own. That someone is Jesus. Let’s take a look at a few reasons why Jesus is better than the Easter bunny.
First of all, the Easter bunny brings you candy and little presents. These are super nice and of course we’re glad that the Easter bunny does this, but in all reality the presents the Easter bunny gives us aren’t that awesome. They will all be eaten in time and most of the gifts he brings aren’t that amazing. Jesus however gave us a gift that doesn’t get old, eaten or get boring. Jesus gave us the gift of eternal life. By accepting His gift we are able to get to know God the Father.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. – John 14:6 (NIV)
The Easter bunny is fluffy and cute, but he really doesn’t compare to the coolness of Jesus. Jesus conquered death, hell and the grave. And he did all of this for you and me, so we wouldn’t have to. We no longer have to fear death, in Jesus our eternity is certain.
Jesus is way better than the Easter bunny. He made a way for us to know God and He also conquered death and hell. We should take time this Easter to thank Jesus for all the incredible things He did for us!
