Eat the ears off chocolate bunnies? (My personal favorite.)
At Bible Truth Ministries Church the children presented the Easter service.
They opened with a hilarious puppet show. The puppet characters explain what Easter is all about.
The rabbit says it's about the bunnies: chocolate, marshmallow, caramel, etc.
The Fox insists it's about the eggs.
The lion declares it's about the big meals, especially the ham. At this point all the puppets turn to face the pig puppet.
Finally the pig reveals the true meaning of Easter: that Jesus came to save us.
Celebrating Easter without Jesus at the center is like having a birthday party without inviting the birthday person.
What does Jesus have to do with you? This link http://peacewithgod.jesus.net/ makes it plain.
The bottom line is this:
Jesus loves you, and wants a relationship with you. His arms are wide open, waiting to hold you.
He did the hard part. All it takes on our part is a simple prayer.
"Jesus, please forgive my sins, and be my Savior."
The Easter eggs and chocolates will eventually be gone, but new life with Jesus will last for all eternity.
