Thoughts On Easter – for Apr. 21, 2011

Some of the stems of the little plants looked hairy when I brought several pots up from the basement. It is called a resurrection plant and was given to me several years ago by a friend. She also gave me some instructions on how to look after the plants after enjoying the flowers. In fall quit watering and let the plants die back. Cut off at ground level and put away. In spring start watering and they will come up again. They like sunlight. I just brought up the plants and watered them so they will come back to life again.

On Good Friday we remember that Jesus Christ was nailed to a cross as a worst criminal, even though He was innocent. In the Old Testament the blood of a perfect lamb, without any blemish, was used once a year for the cleansing of the sins of the people. In the New Testament Jesus became the perfect sacrifice, because He was without sin, and did it once and for all.

But Christ did not stay on the cross. At Easter He arose from the dead and He is alive. Let’s celebrate a risen Saviour this week. Have a Happy Easter.
