This week is one of the most important weeks in Christian history. It is not only celebrating new life on the farms, fresh leaves on the trees and hotcrossbuns for breakfast, or chocolate eggs and bunnies.
Someone died a cruel death on a cross. Not just anybody. It was somebody who was innocent of any crime and He hang between two criminals. Christ was willing to give His live as punishment for the sins of mankind. He was obedient to His Father. God so loved the world that He sent His Son to pay that penalty so that we can be reconciled to a relationship with God if we so decide to do.
However, Jesus Christ knew that He would rise from the dead and be with the Father in Heaven again. He arose. He is alive for evermore.
Let us rejoice and be glad for what Jesus Christ has done for us.
Enjoy a blessed Easter.
