LANGEVIN: on Easter and the Third Symbol

There are typically three symbols of Easter.
Easter time.

There are typically three symbols of Easter: the cute Bunny, the sweet Eggs, and the bitter Cross.

All three are symbols indicating new and ultimately innocent life, but the cross is a message for all mankind revealing not only the purchase price for our salvation, but the love that God, the Creator of the universe, has for us.

The cross was an instrument of execution whereon the guilty and the dammed were sentenced. According to the laws of God, we, who are all violators of those laws, deserve that fate. We lie, we cheat, we steal, we blaspheme, we hate, we kill, we are sexually immoral, and on and on. Amazingly, the Lord Jesus Christ, the sinless Son of God, took our place. He was crucified, died, and was buried.

But on the third day He rose from the dead, victorious for all peoples, for all time, promising the forgiveness of sins, and new, and eternal life for all those who believe in Him.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Have a great EASTER!
