This week is the road to the Resurrection – the brutal beating, ridicule and death of our Savior… but then, the magnificent defeat of death by Jesus just a few days later! Our foundation for believing is built upon this event… if Christ has not risen…what is the point?
If you would like to be meditating on the events this week, I was looking through old emails and found these passages that were put together specifically for meditation. I pray that your hearts are softened and in the right place this week as we remember the significance for this Easter holiday. The greatest sacrifice was made. Jesus paid our wages of sin in full with His death on the cross and then rose from the grave! Praise Jesus, our Lord!
