Easter Splendor

While Easter was nearly a month ago already it is good to think daily of the death and resurrection of Christ and the new life bought for us with His blood. It seems that new clothes at Easter goes well with the celebration. We buy a new dress or new shirt for the girls and boys and wear them proudly. What a great symbol of our lives in Christ! With His death and resurrection our new life has been bought. We are able to put on the new clothes of His righteousness and wear it proudly, not because of how nice we look but because of the beauty of His mercy poured out upon us. So, every Easter we put new clothes on our kids. It's fun for them and I hope as they grow older they learn to recognize not only the pretty new dress but the glorious new life found in Christ!
