The proof the opposition to Jesus demanded that He was the Son of God, is the very proof I cherish that He is the Son of God—He remained on the cross! If Jesus would have saved Himself he could not have saved me. Thank you Jesus, for enduring the shame, indignity, and suffering of the Crucifixion…what wondrous love! (Matthew 27:43)
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and loose heart. Hebrews 12:2-3.
Deep in their hearts our children are searching for the “Eggstraordinary” Love of God. This Easter take them on an “Egg” hunt that will assure them of God’s personal love for each one of them. The great Truth in their Easter basket is that God allowed His Son to remain on the cross…what wondrous love!
