Missing Easter

If you miss the Easter bunny
And your basket still is empty
And you have no Easter lily,
Then you haven't missed a lot.

If you miss the risen Savior
And your soul is running empty
And you have no Holy Spirit,
Then you've missed--you've missed it all.

Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
--1 Corinthians 15:1-2 ESV

The devil sure has offered a lot of things for people to think about to distract them from the real meaning.

Great post.

Thanks, brother, for the note. You're on-target.

I have no objection to bunnies or Easter eggs. They can bring momentary pleasure, but they really don't amount to much.

Such truth simply stated. Have a blessed Easter.
