Reflect on Christ’s Great Sacrifice of Love

Welcome to the Bronte Church family! This weekend all around the world people gather to celebrate and remember the time of the passion and Passover. It may be confusing to some who may ask what does chocolates, Easter bunnies and eggs have to do with it? Well, really nothing at all!. During the time of Christ and the celebration of the Passover especially as He was preparing for Calvary, there was also a pagan festival that was also celebrated to the alleged goddess of fertility, spring and light Eostre which became known as Easter and it somehow got mixed in and merged with what people today know as Easter. However, if the truth be told, it really has nothing to do with what the real truth of the occasion is. There are even movies today being produced that portray a more accurate message of the occasion such as recently released Risen and The Young Messiah. This is a time we pause and reflect on the great sacrifice made by the Son of God, the Saviour of the world. Romans 5:8, says, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while w were yet sinners Christ died for us,” (NASB). We were in fatal condition and sentenced to death because of sin. But Jesus, came to make a way for us through His grace to be reconciled back to God by bridging the gap with His own life so that through believing and accepting Him as our Saviour from sin and Lord of our life we can not only be forgiven but set free to live a life that honours Him. What will be your response to His love for you? As we celebrate the Last Supper through foot washing and communion at our Lord’s table, may we open our hearts and receive Him in today anew. We have courage for today, hope for tomorrow, and life everlasting because He is risen, for looked where they laid Him, He is no longer there! Let us thank God and remember Him this weekend for His infinite sacrifice of love as we look forward to meeting and eating with Him one day soon at Heaven’s banquet table!
