A couple weeks ago we pulled out last years Resurrection Eggs. This years Easter celebration has brought some very profound conversation with our Little Man. One day when we was going through the eggs he opened the last egg and gasped (like he does every time 😉 ), “It’s empty!”
“It is empty isn’t it? Why is it empty?” I asked.
“Because Jesus rose from the dead!” he stated excitedly.
“That’s right! Hey Buddy, why did he rise from the dead?”
[silence] “…I dunno.”
“Well, if Jesus paid the price for our sins on the cross and he took our punishment when He died, what did he do when he rose?”
With a frown full of anticipatory questioning he waited for the answer.
“If Jesus never rose from the dead, we wouldn’t ever have the chance to be fully alive in Him. Jesus rose from His tomb so that we would have the opportunity to have new life, eternal life, FOREVER life in Him!”
Have you ever thought about the significance of the empty tomb? I hope you’ll join our family today in pondering the weighty truth that the resurrection of Jesus holds.
“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
-Jesus Christ, John 11:25, 26
Happy Easter from the Robinsons to you!
