As Christians, the Easter holiday is one of many emotions. During this time, we experience laughter and make great memories through our family activities or through church sponsored Easter events. We also experience grief as we take time to reflect on the cross and the solemn day in which our Savior was crucified for our sins. And lastly, we experience immense joy, knowing that Jesus rose from the grave and defeated sin and death so that we do not have to live a life in bondage.
Every Easter, I become more and more grateful for the sacrifice my Jesus made for me on the cross. Knowing that His infinite love was tested in such a manner, and that He overcame, gives me hope. It leaves me speechless to think that He sustained such suffering just so I may know Him. His love was poured out. He paid the ultimate price. He sacrificed His life so that I can feel His closeness everyday. During the Easter season, I challenge you to study and attempt to comprehend the pain and suffering Jesus went through so that He could be our Saviour...our Healer...our Deliverer. And ask yourself this one question: What love is this?
Jesus reached down to save us as INDIVIDUALS, so that we each may have a personal relationship with Him.
