Christ is Risen!
He is risen indeed!
Last week my son asked me why we have eggs at Easter. I explained that they are a symbol of new life and that is the central part of the Easter story: Jesus risen from the dead, giving us life.
I then failed to think of a good reason for chocolate, although late in the day when the kids have run me ragged I think chocolate can give me a new lease of life!
The joy of Easter is not that Christ died, but that he rose from the dead. Many people die cruel deaths, some die to save others, but only Jesus brings eternal life. Hallelujah!
May I wish you all a very Happy Easter!
