He is Risen!

He is risen! He is risen indeed!

As a young believer in a small “country church”, I was puzzled by the way the people greeted each other my first Easter as a Christian.

The atmosphere was pregnant with a sense of excitement that went beyond the sugar high of children who had spent the morning feasting on chocolate, jelly beans and marshmallow peeps.

Families began to gather in their Easter finery. Ladies wrapped in bright colors wearing millinery that rivaled the splendor of spring flowers dressed by their Maker. Gentlemen in freshly pressed shirts adorned with new ties. Children wearing their new Easter outfits accessorized with chocolate mustaches.

My Beautiful Jesus

4 Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted.

5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.

6 All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.

Isaiah 53:4–6

Good Friday…a day of remembrance.  His LIFE. His SUFFERING. His BLOOD. His DEATH. It was all His CHOICE.

My SIN. It was my CHOICE. I REJECTED God. He WELCOMED and FORGAVE me.

Today we remember our REDEMPTION. The price that was paid for FORGIVENESS and PEACE between God, men and women.

Try reading Isaiah 53:4-6 above and personalize it. Surely my griefs He bore…

Yes, this is graphic…but so was my sin! 

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ into your life, I invite and plead with you. Let today be the day of your coming into a relationship with Him.
