THE MEANING OF EASTER — CHILD’S VERSION
Our three-year-old, Nicole, was as anxious for Easter to come as she had been for Christmas to come. Since my wife was expecting our third child in just a few weeks, many people were giving us baby gifts since this was our first child in this church. Nicole had picked out a new dress and Mom had given her a new white bonnet. As we stopped at a store to buy her a new pair of shoes to go with her outfit, she once again said, “I can’t wait for Easter, Daddy!” I asked her, “Do you know what Easter means, honey?” She replied, “Yes.” “Well, what does Easter mean?” In her own sweet three-year-old self, with arms raised, a smile on her face, and at the top of her voice she said, “Surprise!!!” What better word could sum up the meaning of Easter! Surprise death! Surprise sin! Surprise mourning disciples! Surprise modern man, He’s alive!
