We have celebrated another Easter and every year I walk away with the same awe struck reality. Jesus Christ died and suffered on the cross for you and for me. His love is overwhelming and beyond words.
Every year I look at all of the extra chairs in the congregation and the lack of parking spaces and my prayer is that at least one person who doesn’t have a relationship with Jesus will walk out of all of those services having had a true encounter with Him.
The Jesus that was born a baby to humble parents, the Jesus that grew up to be a strong carpenter, the Jesus that walked on this earth and healed the sick and raised the dead, the Jesus that died a horrific death on a wooden cross, and the Jesus that three days later was raised from the dead! The Jesus that is very alive today!
Only the One True God would go through such suffering so that we could have salvation. Only the One True God would love us enough to make a way for us. Only the One True God would give His Son for our life. Only the One True God would give His life so we could live. Only God!
What an incredible love, what an incredible sacrifice, and what an incredible Savior. I hope this past Holy Week you were able to offer praise, glory, and honor to the Messiah, the Christ, the One Who Saves!
