Someone once said that you can give without loving but you cannot love without giving.
Easter is a magnificent celebration of love in action – the giving of an incredible gift that demonstrates God’s extravagant love for us.
This is the time when we stop and remember how God gave us His son, Jesus Christ. Jesus lived a sinless life, yet he died for every one of us who is marked with sin. Having given his all on that rugged cross, they took him down and put him in a tomb.
It didn’t end there. On the third day he rose from the dead and this is why Christians have a reason to celebrate Easter. It is the same resurrection power and extravagant love that impacts our lives today.
It’s worth stopping and thinking about the depth and breadth of God’s love for us. Our prayer is that this Easter, you will find the true meaning and wonderful love that is behind the Easter story.
