As Easter is approaching we must remember this. We celebrate God’s promise kept and so we can’t be dismiss what Jesus did, the Father’s Son. It was at God’s direction that He should suffer for our wrongs because of God’s affection. He took the sins of all of us, though He was pure and holy. The suffering that He sustained was meant for us. He slowly died on the cross that fateful day. His agony was such that He fulfilled the prophecy. God loved us all that much. Then three days later, from the tomb triumphantly arose that you might live eternally! It’s you the Father chose to live with Him in Heaven above when your life is no more. This Easter time remember that it’s you God did adore!
