Easter is more then fancy clothes and dyed and fried hair. Easter is an important holiday that celebrates the promise and gift from God given to you.
This world started with sin. We are all born in sin. In fact, homosexuals, thieves, murderers all start out the same way you did and will end up the same way you will if you don't accept the gift of Christ.
"For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23) You can't be good enough to go to heaven. No one is good enough. The wages of all sin is death. Whether you told a white lie, or you killed someone no sin is considered better then the other.
Fortunately for us God loves us as His children! He wanted a way for us to be able to come back to Him. So He sent His one perfect son, Jesus Christ, to take on our sins at the cross. Not only did He do that, but he bore stripes on His body for our healing and he was pierced in His side and shed blood for the forgiveness of our sins. That first good Friday may have been solemn but will be victorious for us all.
On Easter the tomb was rolled away and it was empty. Jesus arose from the dead with our victor over hell! We no longer are doomed to die because of our sins. Your Easter promise is this, "That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9)
