Hallelujah! He is Risen!

Today it is Good Friday!

There are no words that can ever be spoken to honestly relay the true meaning of this sacred holiday. It means so much more that we could ever understand. There is no way that we could EVER understand the significance of such a day.

This is will be day of redemption, grace, sacrifice and absolute eternal love, not by us but by the one who gave himself for us.

Easter Means Eternal Life

A perfect God demands a perfect justice;

He cannot let us get away with sin.

We used God’s gift of our free will to trespass,

So heaven’s gates were closed; we couldn't get in.
Our sin required our blood, a sacrifice,

To atone for all the wrongs that we had done.

"But I love them!" cried our Father, filled with sorrow;

"I’ll send my only Son to be the one."
Good Friday marks the slaying of our Jesus,

The unblemished lamb, the perfect sacrifice.

He took our guilt and blame upon Himself,

So we could be with Him in paradise.
On Easter morning, he came back from death;

He vanished from the tomb, the empty grave.

His resurrection means eternal life

For us, the ones he came to earth to save.
This summarizes all the Easter story

And because of it, we’ll be with Him in glory.
By Joanna Fuchs

You will never be good enough on your own for Heaven. That's why we need Jesus.

Hallelujah ! He is RISEN! Praise God almighty He is Risen!
