There are a lot of fun holidays to celebrate throughout the year. Maybe your favorite is Christmas or Thanksgiving. Well, did you know that Easter is the most important holiday of them all? It’s true and here’s why. Easter is the holiday where we celebrate the day Jesus rose from the dead. The fancy word for this is resurrection. Let’s do a quick review so we all understand why Jesus had to die in the first place. Jesus is God who came to live among us so he could die for us to pay for our sin problem. Sin is going our own way instead of God’s way. Our sin broke our relationship with God. So, Jesus died on the cross to fix this sin problem. But, he didn’t stay dead. Three days after dying on the cross he rose again! He did this to prove his power that even death can’t defeat him. And, his resurrection means we get to have new life. Because of Jesus, we have the power to say, “No” to sin and “Yes” to living to honor God. All we have to do to have this new life is to put our trust or faith in Jesus. When we do that, our sins are forgiven and our relationship with God is fixed! That’s pretty cool and that’s why Easter is so important!
