"For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
Go tell it to everyone . . . everywhere . . . that Jesus Christ of Nazareth was born on this earth so that he could die to pay for our sins. Not his sins, but ours. After the weight of this burden, I'm sure the weight of the cross itself felt like nothing. But it was really something!
As we come up to the month of our Easter celebrations, we are constantly reminded of Jesus' great gift to us all. Even with all the commercialization of the Easter holiday, we still hold a debt of gratitude to God for the gift of his son. We also owe Jesus for his great gift.
We Christians are blessed beyond ordinary belief! To you, Jesus, and to God, the father, we give our heartfelt thanks.
Shall we pay a little less attention to the Easter bunny and a little more to our salvation as we enter the Easter season?
