Easter Sunday. A day for family get-together's, easter egg hunts, looking for the easter bunny. For me, Easter brings a reminder of just what the Lord Jesus did for me ~ and for you. On that day, more than 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ was crucified for a crime he did not commit. He was tried, convicted and condemned to die. He was nailed to a cross, and a crown of thorns put on his head. He let His creation whip the flesh off his back. Some say "they killed him". But He is the Son of God and no one killed him. He laid down His life for you and me. And why would anyone do this for me? Why am I so special that anyone would give their life for a ransome for me? Because He loves each one of us so much that that's what it took for us to be saved. There had to be a sacrifice and Jesus willingly laid down His own life, left His place in glory to be our substitute. Just to say "thank you" does not seem enough. When someone opens a door for you at the store, you say "thank you"! But to say "thank you" to the Son of God, who laid down his life for you just seems trivial. But that's all we have ~ just to say thank you. I am so glad and thankful that Jesus did this for me otherwise I would be utterly and hoplessly lost in my sin. Even though the only words I have are "thank you" I can live my life in a way that is pleasing to Him and will glorify Him.
I hope you all have a Blessed Easter and take some time to reflect on the real meaning.
