The Colors of Easter

When we picture Easter colors we picture in our mind yellows and
greens, pastel pinks and blues.

We think of variegated Easter eggs and ribbons on bright colored baskets.
Spring has sprung and colors are in the air.
Including the bright colored birds and bumblebees.
There are flowers of every color and size, every shade and shape.

Easter: the time to feel lighthearted and shed a few clothes.
Easter: the time to spring clean, opening doors and windows.
Easter: the time to fill children's thoughts with the idea of gifts
and something sweet received for the looking.

For one minute can I ask you to open your mind to the true colors of Easter?
I believe Red is one of the colors of Easter.

Red was the color of the sweat that poured from
my sweet saviors brow as He asked his father,
"if possible let this cup pass from me nevertheless not as I will but thou wilt be done."

Red was the color of the blood that lay across what was left of the back of Jesus
after the cat of nine tails dug in ripping
and pulling flesh away from his ribs.
Red was the color of the blood on his sweet face after he was beaten
and had his beard pulled out by the handfuls.

Red was the color of the blood that fell from
his forehead when they beat the crown of thorns piercing to the bone.
Red was the color of the blood that poured from his side when they pierced him
to prove that he was dead.

Purple is a color of Easter.
Purple was the color that Jesus' back
shone bruised for our Transgressions.

Purple was the color of Jesus' swollen face and eyes
showing us there was no pride only humility
and a feeling of being forsaken by his beloved father.

Purple is a color of Easter because it is the color of royalty.
It is the color of the garment that covered
Jesus the King of the Jews as they laughed and scorned Jesus.

Black is one of the colors of Easter.
It is the color of sin that so easily took over the eyes of the people that chanted,
" Barabbus release Barabbus".

Black was the color of the sixth to the ninth hour over all the land.
About the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice saying,
"My God My God, why have you forsaken me. "

Black was the color of the tomb where they laid the body of
Jesus as they rolled the stone in front of it's mouth.

White is a color of Easter.
White is the color of the robe they took
from Jesus before they scourged him.
White is the color of purity that we can receive from the death of Jesus on that cross.

White is the color of the slate of one of the robbers
that asked Jesus to remember him when he comes
into his kingdom.

White was the color of the linens that lay empty in the tomb.
White was the color of the angels clothes that asked Mary why she was weeping.

Yes, White is one color of Easter because it is the color of purity.
Symbolizing the purity we can receive through the death of Jesus on that cross and the
forgiveness of sins seeing he took them on himself so we can be saved.

Easter is the time for shedding things.
Shedding weights of sin and shame so we can feel lighthearted.
It is the time to open doors and windows of our heart so
Jesus can sweep clean our slate.
It is time to look for the treasures in the word so we can be filled
with the sweet nectar that only comes from the Spirit of God.

Remember the Easter Colors Red, Purple, Black and White this Easter.
But more so remember what they symbolize.

The True Colors of Easter.
