Easter Sunday

‘There would be no point in Christmas without Easter Sunday.’ I wrote these words to a seeking friend. A bit revolutionary, but I think it’s true. Jesus didn’t come to this earth to show us how to live or to heal a few of the sick, He came to die. That was the purpose of His coming, to right the wrongs played out in the Garden of Eden. The hymn writer says ‘He came to make us good,’ Yes, He was an example of a perfect life, but His perfection will not be a saving for us unless we accept His sacrifice.

‘What would Jesus do?,’ the wrist band asks. Good guidance when we face a problem or decision is invaluable as we travel life’s journey. But as I also know heaven isn’t for good people, but for saved sinners. Yes, we’ve had Good Friday but thank God that it was followed by Easter Sunday. ‘Hallelujah what a Saviour.’ My Saviour.
