Easter Sunday Devotion

For God so loved the world that he gave His only Son,
Gave Him up to death,
Death on a cross.
Horrible, painful death,
Agony of whips, thorns and nails,
Thirst & dehydration
Mental agony - “Why have you forsaken me?”
God forsakes no-one.
Agony of the mocking crowd. - “Why doesn’t he save himself?”
Could have done.
Didn’t.
Not His will, but God’s.
To His tormentors, He offered forgiveness.
To the repentant sinner, paradise.
And the day wore on.
Gave Himself up to death.
The sky darkened.
The curtain tore in two.
Dead.
Gone.
What now?
Disciples in fear.
In hiding.
Sunday morning, time to anoint the body.
Which body?
No body there.
Nobody to anoint.
He rose again.
He is risen.
Hallelujah.
