Hello, everyone! Happy Easter!!! While many people are having egg hunts or playing April Fools Pranks, I am rejoicing! It amazes me so much that the God of the universe sent his one and only Son to be hated by many and die a cruel death for those same people- and for you and me! But it doesn’t end there!!! He conquered death and ROSE FROM THE GRAVE SO THAT WE TOO CAN HAVE ETERNAL LIFE!! That is the purest form of love imaginable.
I’ve been practicing a song for church, and the words really spoke to me.
How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure,
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss –
The Father turns His face away,
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory.
Behold the man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders;
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished;
His dying breath has brought me life –
I know that it is finished.
I will not boast in anything,
No gifts, no power, no wisdom;
But I will boast in Jesus Christ,
His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer;
But this I know with all my heart –
His wounds have paid my ransom.
