Celebrate Easter’s truth


Brianna Mosinski, Staff Writer

  Easter is an important holiday for many.

  For some, Easter is a time to celebrate with family and friends, hunt eggs, take pictures with the Easter bunny, give gift baskets, paint eggs, or spring clean. When wandering the aisles at a store and see the irresistible chocolate, it’s hard to resist not buying.

  It’s fun to have egg hunts, candy, decorate, and go outdoors.

  There is nothing wrong with doing all these activities during Easter, but in my opinion, some are missing the true meaning of Easter.

  Easter is about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus died on the cross for our sins on a Friday, known as Good Friday, and on the third day, He rose again. This became Easter Sunday.

  Mark 16:4-6 says, “But when they [Mary Magdalene and Salome] looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here…”

  Many Christians gather together at their church and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ through prayer, worship, and a special meal.

  My family and I usually spend Easter at church. We have a special service devoted to the resurrection of Christ and celebrate with a meal afterward.

  Easter is one of my favorite holidays because of what it stands for, and my family and I get to celebrate it together.

  1 Peter 1:3 says, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead…”

  All things considered, that’s the true meaning of Easter.
