On this day we celebrate the life and resurrection of Jesus . He came from Heaven and took on the form of a man to walk among those that where lost , he preformed countless miracles and gave hope to a dying world. As his journey came to an end , he was taken and made a mockery for the world to see yet he never said a word . They beat him until he could not move as his flesh was torn and his mother watched helplessly. They hung him on a cross while a crown of thorns pierced his head and still he remained quiet , loving us so much he asked God to forgive the people because they didn’t have a clue what they had done. When he released his spirit back to God the earth quaked and the skies darken and those that loved on him wept greatly . They placed him in a tomb and placed guards at the entrance fearful that his followers would come and take him . But just like he promised on that 3rd day he arose and walked out of that tomb. Death has no hold on our Savior he has risen and he is still alive today .
The death of Jesus was not beautiful nor glamorous , but through all the pain he endured his purpose . God gave his only son and presented him to the world as the ultimate sacrifice , gifting him to us so that we as his creation might live eternally with him . Thank you Lord for this gift of eternal life and help us to not forget the real reason for this day !!!
Love and Blessings
