The weekend is here. But this weekend isn't your normal weekend. This weekend we remember and celebrate the arrest, crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Today, is known as Good Friday. Today, we pause and remember the death of Jesus.
We would like to invite you and your family to take today to slow down a bit and consider what this day represents. Today, Christ dies for the sins of the world. Jesus, willingly goes to the cross for you and me. Would you take a minute and read through John 19:1-41. In these verses, John, the only disciple to be at the foot of the cross, shares his eyewitness-testimony. You can read John 19 by clicking here; JOHN 19.
The Bible tells us, that Jesus came to earth to die on the cross to save the world from sin. We all have sin. Every single one of us. And the result of our sin leads to death. But Jesus willingly chose to take our place, to die for us that we might live. His death brings forgiveness through the shedding of his blood, All of this shows us just how much God loves us.
On behalf of everyone in the Higham household, and across all of our blogs and social media, we would like wish you a special and life-chaning, Happy Easter! We hope and prayer for you and your family, is that you know just how much God loves you!
