Can you remember the Easter Bunny coming to visit your house as a little kid? Remember the packages of chocolate, jelly beans, and the awesome toys he would bring? The Easter Bunny sure brought his fair share of awesome things into tons of kid’s lives. However, as great as the Easter Bunny is, he sure pales in comparison to Jesus.
Jesus, unlike the Easter Bunny isn’t meant to be in your life for only one Sunday out of the year. He doesn’t visit, then go away. Instead, Jesus comes to live in your heart when you accept him as savior. That means that you are able to talk to him at any time or in any place.
The Easter Bunny is cute and fluffy, which definitely makes him lovable. His ears flop, and his tail is puffy, but when push comes to shove, he’s just a little bunny. Jesus on the other hand is the definition of awesome! He was able to do what no other person could do. He paid the price for the sins of the whole world. He defeated death, hell, and the grave so we didn’t have to.
Because Jesus Christ did what God wanted him to do, we are all purified from sin by the offering that he made of his own body once and for all. – Hebrews 10:10 (GNB)
So the next time you see stuff in the stores about the Easter Bunny, remember that as neat as the Easter Bunny is, he doesn’t even compare to how awesome Jesus is. Jesus did what no one else could do. He offered himself as a sacrifice for sin, which is the best Easter present!
