Zechariah 11 : 12 – 13
And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.
And the Lord said unto me, cast it unto the potter : a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver and cast them to the potter in the house of the lord.
12 : 10 – 11
And I will pour upon the house of David, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications : and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
Acts 12 : 3
And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. [ Then were the days of unleavened bread.]
As we have learned from the teachings of the Bible God so loved the World that he gave his only begotten son so that who ever believeth in him shall not perish but shall everlasting life and dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Jesus suffered terribly on the Cross for all of our sins. Jesus sacrificed himself to save all of us from death. All that believe in the Lord shall not perish but have eternal life. There are many rooms in heaven and all of us that believe in the Lord shall live with the Lord in one of the many rooms that he has prepared for us.
Easter is about sacrifice and love that is so great and overpowering that we can hardly imagine giving one of our beloved children to save the lives of everyone in the World that believes in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Gods love of man transcends down through the ages.
We often think of a sacrifice that we have made in our life but all of our sacrifices fall way short of the sacrifice God made to save us from death and give us life everlasting. Jesus said forgive them they know not what they do when he was being put on the cross. How many of us would forgive our executioner.
On the third day Jesus rose from the grave. He has risen He has risen indeed. We will have eternal life in the house of the Lord because Jesus died for our many sins. On Easter Sunday I go to church and think of the sacrifice God made to save all of us who believe in him. I hope all of you will go to church on Easter Sunday and reflect on the the sacrifice that was made to save us from all of our sins that we may dwell in the house of the lord forever. Christ has risen. Christ has risen indeed. Grace, Love, Peace, Faith, Joy and Hope be with you today and always. Have a happy and blessed Easter Sunday. Remember God loves all of us.
