Easter Week in History
This week of Easter brings a lot of emotions to me. I am sad and empty because this is the week in history when Jesus was betrayed and beaten. This is the week in history that Heavenly Father knew was coming. Jesus knew it too. The tragedy on Good Friday was pre-ordained and part of Our Father’s Plan of Salvation. My heart weeps for Jesus. My heart also weeps for our Heavenly Father. The Father of us all stood by and watched his first born, his only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, atone for the sins of all the world. Every ‘Good Friday,’ I stand all amazed at the love he has given me. I try to understand, and I cannot. I know that someday I will. But for now, I feel lost in grief.
I find joy, comfort, love, and faith in the day of Easter. I have a personal testimony that in Jesus Christ died on the cross to save us. Our beloved Lord knew that He would return to rescue us. 3 days after Jesus died, He triumphantly returned in body and soul to testify of His Glory. Jesus is a fully resurrected spirit, His Body and Soul rejoined as one. The Scriptures testify of this truth.
Please love your neighbors as you love yourself. This is the 2nd greatest commandment of all.
