Hi people, I am just sitting hear thinking about the passion play our church put on last night.
I do not think we can fathom how much God loves us to send down his son to pay for what we have done and still do. I know that I could not do the same. I was thinking could I send either one of my boys to their death for someone else sins NO.
It is so simple but I could not do it and he did it because he loves us. I know that is the truth and I thank him for it constantly.
The best news is that in 3 days he rose again and is now seated at the right hand of our father.
Remember he gave us internal life because of that perfect LOVE.

I am not sure that this makes any sense as it is hard to put into words my love for my family and that is all our Lord wants to do is love us.
Have a happy EASTER and be safe.

Blessings,

Happy Easter sir! Today, Good Friday, is especially poignant for me. The cruelty and pain and death on my behalf is humbling and devastating, yet it also fills me with gratitude for the Father.

Your post makes perfect sense to me!

“1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, [there is] no beauty that we should desire him. 3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were [our] faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”

“4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. 9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither [was any] deceit in his mouth.”

“10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put [him] to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see [his] seed, he shall prolong [his] days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. 11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, [and] shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. 12 Therefore will I divide him [a portion] with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” (Isa 53:1-12 AV)

It makes perfect sence. A perfect savior shed his perfect blood, because of his perfect love for us. Then arose from the grave to defeat death once and for all. All we have to do is put our faith and trust in Jesus, to accept his perfect gift, Eternal Life. Happy Easter!
