The Meaning of Easter


What would you say, if asked to describe the significance and meaning of Easter? (And your answer can only fill 53 seconds of time.) What would you say? I would really like to hear your answers.

Here’s mine:

An Easter song says, “Ev’ry morning is Easter morning from now on!    Ev’ry day is resurrection day, the past is over and gone!

Like Easter, when I see a sunrise, I see God giving me another chance. My loving God is giving me a brand new day to get it right: to try to live as Jesus lived. Each sunrise is like God giving me a clean sheet of paper, and , with God’s help, I can try again.

The Easter song continues:

Good-bye guilt, good-bye fear, good riddance! Hello, Lord, Hello sun!
I am one of the Easter People! My new life has begun!

My answer is that the Good News of Easter is about: grace, love, hope, and new life!

How would you answer?  For you, what is the meaning of Easter? (Try stating it in 53 seconds.)
