“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.  John 3:16-18 MSG

During this season, we recognize the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for our sins.   It is a time to reflect on His suffering and death at Calvary for you and for me.   God’s love for us is so vast and so complete that He gave His Son Jesus to the world.  The Son of God came that we might have salvation and that we would see an exemplary Holy life in flesh and blood.   We thank God for this season of celebration and recognition of His life, His death and His resurrection.  It is a season that we can extend throughout the year.  We can celebrate Easter every day.  We can honor His sacrifice by accepting Him into our hearts, confessing that He is our risen Savior.  We are so thankful for the gift of salvation and the opportunity to live in relationship with Him, doing our best to honor His example every day.

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. Romans 10:9-10 NLT
