Reflection for Easter – The Great Gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ and what it cost Him.

You tube song – Graham Kendrick “Paid on the Nail”

“He paid what he thought you were worth.”

Let’s remember that this Free Gift of Salvation cost Jesus everything.

As it says in the song “When I survey the wondrous cross”;

Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Then there is the paradox of victory through an apparent defeat.

but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles,  1 Corinthians 1:23

but not just crucified but crucified, dead, buried, sealed in the tomb, risen, ALIVE.

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.          I Corinthians 15:17

But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.  1 Corinthians 15:20.

Christ is risen

He is risen indeed
