What does the Easter Bunny have to do with Easter?
Ephesians 2:5-6 So he gave us new life because of what Christ has done…God raised us up with Christ. He has seated us with him in his heavenly kingdom.
Easter eggs and bunnies can be used to celebrate Easter because they can point us to the truth about Jesus! Because of what Jesus did for us when he died on the cross and rose from the dead, we can have new life! Let’s read Ephesians 2:5-6
So he gave us new life because of what Christ has done…God raised us up with Christ. He has seated us with him in his heavenly kingdom.
A mother hen will sit on her eggs until she hatches her new baby chicks. These baby chicks represent the new life that God gives us through Jesus’ death and resurrection. The empty egg shells left behind can represent the empty tomb that Jesus left behind when he rose from the dead.
Rabbits also have lots of babies. These little bunnies also represent the new life that we can have in Jesus. This new life means we are free from the power of sin. We no longer need to be afraid that we will be punished for the wrong things we have done. God forgives us and with his help we can live a blessed life while we wait for heaven.
It is fun to color pictures of Easter Bunnies and hunt for Easter Eggs. While we do this, we can remember what God has done for us when he gave Jesus to die on the cross for us!
