It’s Easter time! A time of remembrance and celebration and we could not be more excited! Not only do we get an excuse to eat all the chocolate in the world (bring on those mouth-watering Easter eggs – LOL), but we get a little extra time with our families over the Easter weekend.

What is Easter all about?

“He was pierced for our transgressions.
He was crushed for our iniquities.
By His wounds we are healed.”

We all know the story about Christmas, but how many of us know the true meaning behind Easter? We just wanted to take some time this holiday to explain the importance of Easter.

Before Jesus, we had no future. Humanity had no way of having a relationship with God, no path to forgiveness and no joy in our lives. We were completely doomed, there was no hope for better days. And then, He arrived. Our Savior in human-form, the creator of Heaven and Earth, born in a manger to us. His entire life, He was completely pure, innocent and nothing short of perfect. Because of Him, humanity finally had a chance at being saved.

That was His purpose here on Earth, to save us all from condemnation. Jesus was sent to us out of pure, raw, unconditional love for us. Yes, He loved you then, He loves you still and He will love you forever. We were all born as sinners, but because of His love and undeserving grace, we could be set apart, saved and forgiven.

Back in the day, the wages of sin, was death (Romans 6:23). There was no other payment to take away any sinful act. So, that is why Jesus was sent for us – He was, and still is, the Ultimate Sacrifice. He was crucified for our sins. His blood was shed so that we could receive God’s forgiveness, grace and true love. He was pinned to a cross alongside two prisoners, and just before He took His last breath, He said “It is finished.”

I know, it sounds extremely morbid. You’re probably wondering why Easter is a cause for celebration. There’s only one simple answer to that question – there is a reason why The Gospel is called ‘The Good News’! With Jesus, there is always good news! Not only did Jesus die so that we could be forgiven. He also rose again on the third day! He still lives today and forever. After the tragic storm, came the breathtaking rainbow! Humanity now has a chance to spend eternity with God.

That is what Easter is all about. His sacrifice, for our life and because of Him, we live with hope and endure life’s challenges with joy – true joy that only comes from Him. Although the Easter Egg Hunts and family lunches are exciting, take some quiet time this Easter to remember how gracious He is to give His life for you. Celebrate with thanksgiving! Easter is meant to be a joyful time spent with those you love and appreciate the most.

Easter – A Love Story

“I loved you at your darkest”

That’s what Easter really is, a love story. God sent His Son, God in human-form, to Earth, to live amongst us. Jesus is the one and only way that we can relate to God. Due to His love for us, we live in faith, in undeserving grace, in overwhelming forgiveness and in unconditional love. So next time you’re feeling a little unworthy, remember that someone, the most important person to ever step foot on our beautiful planet, loves you enough to save His last breath on Earth for you.

Just to explain even further how loved you are, one of the girls at Kikki and Franki would like to share this fact with you all. Have you ever wondered why “fearfully” is mentioned in Psalm 139:14? It’s because when God made you in your mother’s womb, He was so cautious and pedantic about you that He feared doing anything wrong. How amazing is that?

The Easter Plaque – A little reminder

[row]

[col span=”6″ span__sm=”12″]

A new addition to our online store is our Easter Plaque.

This plaque serves as a simple but meaningful reminder of what Jesus did for our world- for each and every one of us! The plaque has four symbols on it, each standing for a significant event in our salvation story. The symbols are the palm branch, the crown of thorns, the cross and the empty grave. This year our key verse for Easter is “He is Risen”, so we added that verse to the plaque as well.

We chose this design because it can be used as home decor all year around, and not just for Easter. Sometimes we need to be reminded that we are loved by the Almighty, and no kind of love could ever top that. We think that this minimalistic plaque speaks volumes without saying too much – a perfect way to keep Easter meaningful.
