The Great Exchange ~ or ~ Why We Celebrate

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
I John 4:10

This weekend we remember the events that made "the great exchange" possible.  Christ died not only that we might be rescued from punishment, having our sins forgiven, but also to give us His righteousness in exchange for our sin.  (Crazy, huh?!)  We stand alone, dear Christian, on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.  "Nothing in my hand I bring, simply to the cross I cling."

God the Father turned His back on His Son, that we might be able to turn back to Him.

That's good news.


Wishing you and yours a very happy Easter.
