• A Thought on Easter

    How was your Easter this year? We hope it was a really good opportunity to reflect on the great sacrifice God gave for you and I. Often it is very easy to get swept up and even swept away with the business of life, holidays, family events. Take the time to stop for a bit now, if you didn’t get to over the weekend and read over the words to this song.

     

    How deep the Father’s love for us

    How vast beyond all measure

    That He should give His only Son

    To make a wretch His treasure.

    How great the pain of searing loss

    The Father turns His face away

    As wounds which mar the chosen one

    Bring many sons to glory

     

    Behold a man upon a cross

    My sin upon His shoulders

    Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice

    Call out among the scoffers

    It was my sin that held Him there

    Until it was accomplished

    His dying breath has brought me life

    I know that it is finished.

     

    I will not boast in anything

    No gifts, no power, no wisdom

    But I will boast in Jesus Christ

    His death and resurrection

    Why should I gain from His reward

    I cannot give an answer

    But this I know with all my heart

    His wounds have paid my ransom.

    My hope for you is this stirs some thought about the reason you celebrate Easter personally. Remember to search for the truth in the bible because sometimes we over look whats important when we just get busy. Take a read of Romans 5:8. I know that verse alone gives me a great reason to celebrate. Would love to hear your thoughts guys!
