Based on stories from the Bible. The inspiring stories of Jesue days on earth can be found in the New Testamens of the Bible.

Picture of Easter

Based on stories from the bible

 

Jesus struggling with an enormous, hefty, cross, the flesh of His body open, spilling blood that covers His garments and the cross and flowing to the ground.  

 

Jesus disciples, standing in the crowd, helplessly and painfully watching as He passes by.  There in the crowd is Mary, His mother, watching in anguish, a mother weeps for her son; she cannot be comforted.  

 

When Jesus was too weak to carry the cross;  Simon, a Cyrenian, is forced to carry the cross behind Him; as Jesus stumbles ahead; sometimes falling to the ground; He always manages to get up and keep on His way.

 

Jesus, now, lying on the blood stained cross; on the ground; they drove huge nails through His body; His hands; His ankle; His right and left side.  Driving nails through a body that is covered with massive abrasions, cuts, and gashes.

 

Jesus, stripped of His clothes;  scarlet military cloak  thrown about Him.  A weaved crown of thorns placed upon His head; blood  dripping down his face.  Instead of water; they gave Him wine mixed with myrrh to drink.  Jesus refused to drink.

 

The cross was elevated; now standing tall;  Jesus nailed to that cross;  His body; a mass of blood; ruptured from the lashes of the whip.  Blood flowing freely from His wounds; unto the ground.  His garment saturated  in His blood.       

 

 

 

 A ghastly, bloody scene:  Jesus hanging from the cross.  Mary, His mother, Mary Magdalene, Mary, mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee were among His followers that watched from a distance.

 

Not a pretty picture.  A very graphic picture; but a perfect picture of love.  It is the picture of Easter. 

 

GOD, the FATHER, sacrificed HIS only, dearly beloved Son, Jesus; to save us from our sins. There is no greater love than Jesus dying on the cross to save us all. 

 

On Easter Sunday, Jesus rose from the dead.  But, He first suffered, spilled blood and died for us. 

 

GOD so love the world and all of us; that HE sacrificed HIS only beloved Son to suffer and die, that we may be saved by grace. We all have the opportunity to be forgiven our sins.

 

In return, HE only ask that we follow HIS commandments and laws; have faith, trust in HIM and accept HIS Son as our Savior.  HE asks that we love our neighbors as we love ourselves and that we love HIM with all our heart, soul, mind and body.

My, my, my, Marie.
What a wonderful poem about Easter.
We should worship Him like we do at Easter throughout the year!
Yes, He does not ask much from us.
But do we remember His sacrafice as much throughout the year?
This is a wake up call for all to come to the cross every day.
Amen

Mary this is a beautiful!!!
Since we will be celebrating Easter
And we have begun holy week
Good Friday is just around the corner
This is a beautiful reminder that He gave his life
To rid our souls of sin He paid for our sins with His Life
He love us that Much!!
Beautifully expressed spiritual thoughts!!
Wishing you and yours a Peaceful Joyful Easter Sunday!!
Peace Love and Light…Yolie
