Everything I Need

I was going to post today about Easter eggs.  
We had a day full of egg~cellent fun.

But then I thought "Eggs?  Seriously, you are going to post about eggs?"

I can't post about eggs.
Not today.

I watched this video today.
Click to watch.
You must watch.

I watched.
I wept...
I mean truly wept.

Horrific images...
and yet so very beautiful.
A portrait of the greatest love one will ever know.

He hung there for ME.
God allowed it, all the suffering, the torment...
He allowed it to happen to HIS son, all for ME.

So very humbling.
I just can't get it out of my head.
He hung there for ME.

If you have children then you know the love that a parent holds for a child.
Imagine sending your child, your perfectly innocent child to suffer and die for the sins of others.
Unimaginable right?

But God did it.
He sent His only son, his perfectly innocent son to suffer and die on a cross next to thieves so that you and I could be saved from eternal suffering.  

If you are not humbled by that then I am amazed.

I am a sinner, saved by grace.
He is my savior, my king.
He is all I need.

I know him.
I love him.
But do you?

He carried that cross for me, but it was also for you.
He bore my burdens, but he also bore yours.
God sent him for me, but also for you.
You can also be saved from eternal suffering.
He already paid the ultimate price.
He suffered.
He died.


He is ALIVE!  

"For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son so that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
John 3:16

It was my sin that held Him there.

"Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities, the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed."
Isaih 53:4-5

...they stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, and twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on his head and put a reed in his right hand.  And kneeling before him, they mocked him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!"  And they spit on him and took the reed and struck him on the head.  And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes on him and led him away to crucify him. 
Matthew 27:28-31

His wounds have paid my ransom.

"He said, it is finished and He bowed his head and gave up the ghost"

John 19:30

"By his wounds we are healed"
Isiah 53:5

Happy Easter~
