It’s Easter!

by Pat Severin

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!
