We dye them and color them. We decorate with them. We fill them with candy and nickels and hide them in impossible places for our kids. We search for them as inside jokes in movies and video games. Easter Eggs.
These weeks after Easter, we’re going on a hunt for some of the Easter Eggs of Jesus’ resurrection. We’ll be searching through Biblical accounts of Jesus’ appearances after his resurrection, God’s interactions with his people in the Old Testament, and some of the Apostles’ commentaries on Jesus’ resurrection to find some of the different blessings of Jesus’ resurrection that can be easy to overlook.
Easter’s flagship blessing, eternal life in Jesus, is such a game changer. But the resurrection that waits for us is just the beginning of a cascade of other blessings that trickle down into our lives.
