On the day of Easter God did some thing that the world had never seen before. He did some thing that no one has fully understood and has not been told to its fullness. On this very day a son was given for us as a ransom for our transgression and our sins.

Our sins have caused us death and God loved us so much he punished his son for us. It is impossible for God to break his principles and values. It is also impossible for us to sin and not paid the price of our sins

But we have sinned too much that we could not even pay for our sins.

We make it impossible for God to come closer to us since he is righteous and we are not.

But he loved us so much that we could not even imagine and he paid the great price that was put on us. Sin caused us a huge debt but God paid it all that makes us free from our bondage. He broke the chain that sin has placed and makes us the servant of evil and not the Lord.

He did not let us get destroyed ultimately. In the midst of our distraction Gods miracles revealed to us. While the enemy has planed everything to make us history,the mercy of God showed up to snatch us from the jaws of the evil.

Like a stranded sheep we did not get lost forever. But he come after and rescued us from the death that is waiting for us.

The penalty of sin is death and with our sins we got ourselves in to this penalty.

God as he is compassionate father to all of us did not let us die in our sins but he gave his only son to save us.

Because he loved as so much that he couldn’t let that happen.

If you haven’t done any good to deserve what he has done in your life, praise him for the Lord is good. If you agree with me that nothing we did was good enough to match the evil days of our lives, give him glory and honor for his mercy endures forever.

He came to look for us and we didn’t. With the stubbornness of our heart we didn’t seek him rather we make our ways far and far from him.
We know the path we took leads to destruction but we didn’t stop and realize that he is in deed merciful.

When he did find us finally some of us were not as we were before.
The sparkling of our eyes was lost and this world has gotten the best of us.
As we were sons and daughters of the almighty God but now he found us in the hands of the enemy.

What good one should expect from this. The color of our skins has just faded away. But the Lord took a look and he has gotten in deep sorrow that he couldn’t resist any more.

As a father he who separated from his children for just awhile now sees them so much oppressed and enslaved by the evil one. He decided to pay the entire price before our days are finished and our journey has ended.

While there is still time he calls for our names hoping that his children will listen to his voice and come out of their troubled life. We have caused him this much and he took all the sufferings for us.

Yes on this day God did something that it is still unbelievable for many.
It is more than our imagination but it is simply true and the truth is what we have called to believe. It is what God did in this day that we have put our faith and our lives based on. It is because what God has done on this day that our salvation has built on.

God bless you, in the name of Jesus.

Isaiah 53:4 - Surely he took up our pain
    and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
    stricken by him, and afflicted.
 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
    and by his wounds we are healed.
 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
    each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity of us all.

 He was oppressed and afflicted,
    yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
    and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
    so he did not open his mouth.
 By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
    Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
    for the transgression of my people he was punished.
 He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
    and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
    nor was any deceit in his mouth.

 Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
    and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
    and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.
 After he has suffered,
    he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
    and he will bear their iniquities.
 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
    and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
    and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
    and made intercession for the transgressors.
