The spiritual significance of Easter Lily

The name, Easter Lily, itself implies spiritual significance. Christians sings of Jesus as the “Lily of the Valley” in hymns. And hence, the lily is associated with the resurrection of Jesus Christ who was put to death by the Romans on a Friday – Good Friday. Christians believe that God sent His son Jesus Christ to die and save the world from sins.

Hence, it symbolises pure selfless love and sacrifice – the love of God for the people. “For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son” to die for the world and save the people from sins, according to The Bible.

Easter Lily signifies the beauty of repentance from sins and forgiveness of wrong doings that leads to new beginning and a new life of purity.

It also signifies happiness, new hope and reason to live because He (Jesus Christ) lives.

The white lilies stands for graceful dignity and peace, a sign of glorious victory over the sting of death.

So, go ahead and decorate your house with white lilium this Easter and feel the joy and blissful freshness of the day. Spread the joy of a new beginning.
