I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend. Today is Good Friday, the day we think of Christ sacrifice on the cross. Shedding his blood as an offering to the Father, to not just cover our sins as the old sacrifices of lambs did. His shed blood paid the debt our sin had caused and made a way for us to have fellowship with God. To be part of his family, a joint heir with Jesus. Its a sober remembering, a day to be so grateful.
Easter is the day we celebrate his resurrection from the dead. Because of his resurrection, we have the promise of eternal life.
In family news, Rachel surprised us with a visit home for Easter Weekend! Easter is also a poignant day for us as my younger brother died on Easter Sunday, 24 years ago. He'd been estranged from our family for five years, become ill and came back to the family. It always has seemed like such a redeeming thing that he died on the day we celebrate the resurrection. For we know that on that particular Sunday, David was indeed with the Lord for eternity.
I'm loving this song this year -
Here is a link to Andrew Peterson's version of Is He Worthy. Andrew Peterson is the one who wrote this song.
He is Risen!
He is Risen, Indeed!
