Only Jesus Could Do This

(This is a re-post from a prior year.  Happy Easter!)

Hallelujah!  He is risen!  

I make a lot of fuss about Christmas, but Easter has the most tender place in my heart, because today we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.

Only Jesus, being the son of God, could bear the weight of the world's sins.

Only Jesus, being both man and God, could both die and conquer death.

Only Jesus, the sacrificial lamb, could reconcile us forever with a God who is both just and merciful:

He took on our sins to satisfy God's perfect justice.  
He rose again to embody God's perfect mercy.

That mercy is God's amazing gift to each of us.  Today: make it your own.  Remember, celebrate, and thank Him.  He is risen indeed!
