Q: Easter is coming up in a few weeks. What would be a good way to celebrate it? I'd like to teach my kids something more than the Easter Bunny, candy and new outfits. But I honestly don't know where to start.
A: You start with the resurrection. Easter is the celebration of Christ's resurrection ... which proved that He is who He says He is. It proved that Jesus is God. And that truth means that our sins are forgiven. We just have to confess them and turn to Him.
I think an excellent way to celebrate Easter is to focus on the meaning of the resurrection. Ask yourself what it means that your sins are forgiven. Is that a big deal to you? You might make a list of the sins you've committed so that you can see what Christ died to forgive. You could have your kids, for example, do the same thing.
Our culture, as have many other cultures in the history of the world, includes food as a main part of every celebration. So it's not entirely wrong that we have jelly beans and chocolate rabbits on Easter. It's just wrong to leave it there.
