Thank You For The Cross!

The God who created us in His own divine image gave us a capacity to know Him in a personal intimate way.

He created us to have a relationship with Him and to have fellowship with Him. God loved us from the very beginning.

Adam and Eve were given free will and power of choice. When they chose to be disobedient to God, sin entered into their lives and that sin was passed down to all of us.

Because God cannot look on sin, the relationship and connection between man and God was broken, causing us to suffer the consequence of being separated from Him.

For hundreds of years, God required man to sacrifice a spotless lamb for the atonement of his sins, but these offerings were only temporary.

God’s love provided His own Lamb as a permanent, perfect, final sacrifice for all sin, for all men, for all of time.

God’s love was revealed in its greatest magnitude when Jesus, God’s son who was without sin, became our sacrifice by giving His life on the cross.

He suffered beatings and more painful agony than we can ever imagine when He was crucified!

But by becoming the Lamb of God and shedding His blood for our sins, He paid our debt and made it possible for us to connect with our creator and to have forgiveness of our sins.

“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit”.
I Peter 3:18

The cross bridged the gap between God and man that was caused by sin.

Jesus was and is the only one who connects us with the living God!

He did not stay in the grave, but arose again on Resurrection morning and continues to be alive today!

I pray that you know this truth and celebrate Easter this month with the hope and joy of knowing that Jesus paid your debt so that you may have forgiveness for your sins and have eternal life.

Happy Easter!

Love and Prayers,
