I was deleting pictures and videos from my phone to regain some precious storage when I came across a little gem. A video of My 3-year-old son at his most recent doctors visit. The doctor was asking him questions about what he eats on a daily basis. To my embarrassment, he was unapologetically honest about his food preferences.

If you need a smile, I prescribe this short clip for a dose of cuteness. video clip

As I watched, I remembered his passionate almost visceral reaction to her questions about eating vegetables. I laughed at how certain he was that he does not eat carrots, lettuce, or broccoli because; he was clearly, “NOT A BUNNY”.

On this, most precious, most powerful, and most game changing holiday of the year, I can almost imagine Jesus sitting at the right hand of the father, saying the same thing. Shaking his head with as much passion and disgust.

“I’m not a bunny!”

He might even be saying

I am NOT a fairy tale.

I am NOT a lie.

I am NOT a joke.

I am NOT a harsh ruler.

I am NOT false hope.

I am NOT chains that keep you bound.

“I am NOT a bunny”

He may instead be saying;

I am a lamb.

I am a sacrifice.

I am a savior.

I am a lion.

I am a king.

I am a father.

I am a teacher.

I am a counselor.

I am a friend.

I am the way.

I am the truth.

I am the life.

I am your creator.

I am the beginning and the end.

I am the propitiation of sins.

I am the chief cornerstone.

I am the bright and morning star.

I am the resurrection and the life.

I am the great I am.

Personally, I’m all about carrots and rabbits. I’m even more about chocolate bunnies and jelly beans.  I think we all love the spring kickoff that Easter provides, but If you are a christian, when the sugar high has worn off a bit and the kiddo’s are being put to bed, talk to them about what the holiday is really celebrating. It’s about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The lamb that was slain for you and for me.

NOT a bunny!
