To think God gave His Son for us is just incomprehensible to me. I look at my young sweet son, and the thought of anything happening to him absolutely devastates me. God had a Son much more perfect than my own, yet He willingly gave Him up for me, for my son, for you, and for every other person who has or ever will live. Today we celebrate that gift and the wonderful joy of Christ overcoming the grave.
Below are two songs that have always moved me to tears. They tell the true Easter story. Not one of bunnies and baskets and chicks, but of God giving Himself, His own Son, for us. Because he loves each and every one of us that much. Such an amazing gift.
