Please share with me the reflection of this season for the true meaning of it. When Christ became our sin offering, He took upon Himself what we deserve and in return, gave us His Righteousness. But as the picture below shows the whole message of the gospel, Christ hung between two thieves. They represent our free will. One of them believed in Jesus and was promised he would be with Him that very day in Paradise, while the other one rejected Him and was left to die a permanant death forever separated from God in hell. Have you decided where you will spend eternity? The Bible says, “Today is the day of salvation!” The choice is yours.
Confessing The Truths Your Heart Believes
In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.
I Believe Jesus is my redeemer and He has redeemed me through His shed blood. His redemption means that He has bought me at a great price, the highest price that could be paid for my ransom. I believe that His ransom means that I am no longer in bondage to Satan, stuck in a horrible pit of despair, or a slave to sin.
I Believe that my redemption means that I am no longer my own, and that my purpose it to serve Jesus and glorify Him, not unwillingly, but from the heart, as His bondservant. I count it a privilege to serve Him for love’s sake.
I Believe His ownership of my life brings me great comfort, deep peace, and overflowing joy.

There is sadness in the story. There is pain in the story. There is death. But there is more. The whole story includes the beauty of Easter. The triumph. The joy.
His amazing grace.
Rejoice. He is risen. Rejoice.
