Easter Eggs: The Easter egg represents new life - the new spiritual life in Christ that is possible as a result of Jesus' death and resurrection. The typical pastel colors of the Easter eggs further represent this theme of new life, calling to mind the pastel colors of spring and the new growth of buds and flowers as they burst forth with life after a long winter. The Apostle Paul described new life in Christ this way: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”(2Corinthians5:17).
Easter Egg Hunt: The hunt for Easter eggs serves as a symbol of each individual's need to seek and find new life in Christ. Seeking and finding are things Jesus taught about, but the treasure Jesus challenges us to seek far surpasses chocolate eggs or jelly beans. The treasure Jesus offers for those who seek spiritual truth is a treasure beyond measure, the gift of eternal life through His death and resurrection. And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And the door is opened to everyone who knocks. (Luke 11:9-10)
Easter Lily: The pure white flower of the Easter lily represents the purity of Christ. Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life as the Son of God. He offers us forgiveness of our sins through faith in Him, and in turn purifies us from our sin and 'washes us whiter than snow. “‘Come now, let us reason together,’ says the LORD. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.’” (Isaiah 1:18, NIV)
