Today, Christians around the world celebrate Good Friday. It’s the day the world recognizes that Jesus died on a cross. The story did not end there because on the following Sunday, he rose from the dead.
Easter is all about the new beginning initiated by Jesus over 2,000 years ago. But have you ever stopped to consider why Jesus did what he did?
It was for LIFE and LOVE.
John 3:16 says, “For God so LOVED the world that he sent his only begotten son, that whoever believes on Him, shall be saved.”
In John 10:10, Jesus himself said, “I came that you might have LIFE and that you might have LIFE more abundantly!”
Jesus so loved us and was so committed to life, that he was willing to sacrifice and risk it all, including death, in order to make it available to us.
The really cool part is that the hard work has been done, his love and life is a FREE gift, all we have to do is receive it.
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend and keep in mind the awesome LIFE that LOVE provided!!!
