Happy Resurection Day!!!!!

   That's what my mom calls it. It puts it more into perspective I'd say. It's not about bunnies, or chickens,
or eggs, or any of that. It's about what Jesus did for us on the cross. He bore our sins to calvary. He was beaten, mocked, flogged, and crucified. The way that He loved us, the world, so much he died for all our sins. I don't think many of us could take that kind of beating and still love God.

    But the worst part would have been when God, the Creator of the universe, Jesus' father, our Lord, turned His face away from His son. that must have been extremely hard. I can't imagine it. It's gotta be hard enough when an earthly faher turns his back on you, but your heavenly father? That's tough.

    Then after He died, He was layed in a tomb for three days. After those three days these ladies come to put spices on His body, and they said, " Who will roll the stone away?"

    That was a fair question because the stone to that tomb had been sealed to the cave somehow and there was a bunch of Roman soldiers gaurding the tomb. Or so they thought. When they got to the tomb they found an angel sitting on this stone and the soldiers were gone. The angel told them to go and tell the other disciples that Jesus had risen. So they ran as fast as they could  to tell thier friends. They of course could not believe what they had heard. So a couple of them ran to the tomb and found it empty.

   And that's the gospel. Jesus came born of a virgin, taught the people, fulfilled the prophecies, died on a tree, and rose from the dead after three days. Then after showing Himself to His disciples and some others, He ascended to Heaven.

   No one is  perfect, and we all need forgiveness.

" For all have fallen short of the glory of God.."       
" If we confess our sins He is faitheful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteuosness..."
