Hey – are you wondering what exactly is Easter about?
The most amazing things can be quite simple – at least for us. For Jesus, it wasn’t that simple. He has chosen to walk the hard way, dying on the cross to set us free – looks like he would be the loser – but he “only” lost his life – and gained everything – including freedom for us – tremendously powerful!
Here’s some verses from my favourite “Easter-song”, written by Matt Redman:
I love you for the cross
I’m overwhelmed by the mystery
I love you for the cost
that Jesus you would do this for me
When you were broken, you were beaten, you were punished – I go free
When you were wounded and rejected – in your mercy, I am healed
