Reflecting on Good Friday and Easter
Thank you, Jesus!

This Good Friday, I hope all of my brothers and sisters in Christ take some time to reflect upon all that Jesus did for us when he willingly died for our sins on the cross.
1 Peter 2:24 “He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.”
As Spring Blossoms and we are greeted by Easter this coming weekend, it’s a wonderful time for us to get together with friends and family and celebrate our faith in God. Let’s remember, Easter is not just about bunnies and chocolate, but more importantly, a time to reflect one’s Christian values and what steps one has taken to get closer to Jesus Christ, who through his great sacrifices, granted us eternal life.
Easter reminds us that God loves us so much; He gave his only son so that we could have the chance for eternal salvation. When we accept this truth, that Jesus died and rose again, we are reminded that we too have the chance for eternal life in the Kingdom of God, through Christ.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
