Next week is Easter. Out comes the colored eggs the new clothes and the beautiful flower decorations. Baby chicks and bunnies adorn our decorations. These are the signs of Easter.
It seems fitting that Easter comes in the Springtime as Christ’s resurrection is the sign of new life in Him. But let’s look at these symbols in a different way. Colored eggs and new clothes don’t change what is inside them. The Easter eggs are still just eggs and the new clothes are just coverings for us; we are still the same people. The baby chicks and bunnies are new life just as salvation brings new life to us. But the flowers tell the Easter story.
