Only our God could love His creation so much to give up His son’s life, for death on a cross, to save you and me from the justice we deserve; hell. This Easter season, perhaps we can all start to understand God’s love and appreciate His grace filled, mercy and forgiveness driven eternal salvation plan? What a joy Easter could be if all of God’s people celebrated the Savior and the salvation plan!
