As we come up to Easter, I would like to ask you one very simple question. Have you ever thought about the extent of that Jesus did for you, when he died on the cross? He endured pain, suffering and numerous beatings. Jesus didn’t deserve to die, he had lived a perfect live and was God’s only son. But he still dies for us. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son” He chose to send his only son to die. He did it for you. “So that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” – John 3:16.
