April Fools’ Day is celebrated every year on the first day of April as a day when people play practical jokes on each other. Some people can’t wait to try their newest joke or hoax on their family and friends. I’m not a fan!
There is another day this week that some would have people believe is a joke, hoax, fairy tale or myth. Easter!
A day where millions will reflect on the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ! For a believer, it the very essence of our Faith.
Christ loved us so much that he was willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice and take our place on a cruel cross.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)
It is no joke, He died that we may have eternal life.
“He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.” (1 Peter 2:24, NIV)
Love Heart, we are ALL sinners and have come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). No one is excluded, but there is hope!
“ that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Good Friday is the day we reflect on Christ shedding His innocent blood as an atonement for our sins, but…. Hallelujah, we have the joy in knowing we serve a risen Savior!! He Lives!! ~Debra
