The Reason for Easter

But for this purpose I came to this hour.
— John 12:27 (NKJV)

What a totally selfless attitude our Master has - fully knowing what was coming and yet still prepared to die for sinners like me and you. Amazing Grace!

Let us not pass by, yet again, this incredible act of unparalleled love and selflessness this Easter season. I am sitting here quietly on this beautiful early morning, it is still very dark outside and I am trying to comprehend why our beloved Jesus was prepared to walk the painful and horrific Calvary road for sinners like you and me…

Then I remembered watching the news on television the other night, when it was announced that scientists have, for the very first time ever, got a picture of the black hole in space well beyond our galaxies! The photo from the telescope that captured the picture came up on the screen, and it was a round hole in the sky. Totally black, no light and no life - empty. Just black nothingness, very unnerving to say the least . The young scientist who was trying to explain the black hole said: “It is like we are looking into the very jaws of hell itself.“

Then the term, ‘Eternal damnation’ came to mind and I thought, and felt the Holy Spirit say to me, that is the place where the lost are going forever! That is why the Saviour of the world, the Darling of Heaven - the Lord Jesus was prepared to go through the hellish ordeal He went through, for you and I at this Easter time.

He does not want any of us to go there, ever!

“Father God, I repent of all of my sin. Thank You for sending Jesus to die for me on that old rugged cross, so that through His death I might receive eternal life, and forgiveness of all my sins. By faith I do believe that I have life everlasting, not because I am a good person, but because I am a Believer”.

Spend time in the presence of Jesus over this Easter period, God Bless you, much love,
Angus and Jill Buchan.

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
— John 15:13 (NKJV)

The image shows a bright ring formed as light bends in the intense gravity around a black hole that is 6.5 billion times more massive than the Sun. Credit: Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration
