Easter is a very special time for Christians around the world. This is the time when we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. I've been told that some people tend to leave Jesus hanging on the cross but He didn't stay there. He arose and returned to leave with us the Holy Spirit to teach, comfort and encourage us.
We have read the Bible and know what happened but did you ever think about what Jesus went through for us? I hadn't until a few years ago. It was Good Friday and I was stopping by the grocery store to pick up a few things after work since we had family coming in for Easter. On the radio I heard Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family reading an article from the Journal of the American Medical Association. I sat spellbound in my car in front of the store listening. I couldn't pull myself away. It was overwhelming to hear from a medical viewpoint the terrible emotional and physical trauma Jesus went through, and He did it for you and me.
It's difficult for us to imagine the suffering He endured. We know He had a choice and He chose to give His all so that mankind could receive Eternal Life. There is no greater love than this. Jesus told his disciples, "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends...." John 15:12-14 KJV
Jesus gave His life for you. Will you give your life to Him?
