So is today an excuse for you to sit at home, watch TV and eat hot cross buns? Or is there something more? For me there is.
Today is the day we remember and celebrate the death of Jesus. God gave us His only Son so that we can live. Jesus was beaten and suffered pain as He took on the sin of the world. It is our Sin that held him there on that cross. Even in death Jesus still showed God’s love by the kind words he spoke alongside the robbers on that day. He worshipped God and was praying until the end. Jesus took that punishment for us and we are healed by His blood. His wounds have made us whole.
So stand awhile at the rugged cross and think of all that God has given for you.
Today is not the end…… it is only the beginning
