Those little marshmallow confections are everywhere. You know what I mean. Peeps! They cover candy counters at Easter in all kinds of colors and shapes. That tough stickiness inside them seems like sugar coated rubber because they are indestructible. You can stretch them, bite them, and stomp on them and they do not lose their shape. I even saw a demonstration on television once where someone ran over one with a bulldozer and it still bounced back up. You really can't kill a Peep.
As believers, we need to know that we are like that on the inside too. When the devil comes against us with something, we have the power to bounce back because of the power of the cross. Jesus died and rose again to give us His power.
Peeps retain their shape even after squashing them. When they bounce back they are still shaped like a chicken or rabbit. The shape is its identity and it retains it. Our identity is in Christ and nothing can take that away. We retain our "shape" just like the peep does. That's what His resurrection gives us.
Happy Resurrection Day! What does it mean to you?
