Empty Tomb Cookies

Faithful Provisions has a great recipe for Empty Tomb Cookies that is a great way to teach your children the Easter Story. What a great message with lots of tangible reminders of the Lord's suffering.

 Easter isn't about bunnies and candy. It's about Jesus.

God loves you and sent his Son to die for us so that we can live with him in this life and the next. If you have not put your trust in him, I encourage you not to go another second without Him. Jesus gives each of us the most beautiful present.  He suffered and died for you and for me so that we can be forgiven of all of our sins and spend forever with him. But like any gift, we have to take it.  We can only receive that gift by coming to the cross, knowing that Jesus loved us so much that he died for us. God wants to love us, not punish us, and provided a way for us to come to him and be reconciled to Him. That way is Jesus.

If you have never given your life to Jesus I would encourage you to not only think about it, but act on it. Put your faith in him this Easter! Ask Jesus to come into your life and forgive your sins. Thank him for dying for you! Ask him to fill you with His Spirit. That's all you have to do, He has done the rest at the cross.

Happy Easter!
