Have you noticed how much Australians love to celebrate… ‘Happy Birthday!’ ‘Happy Christmas!’ ‘Happy New Year!’ ‘Happy Australia Day!’ ‘Happy Easter!’?
But what is so ‘Happy’ about Easter!?
Jesus tells us in the Bible that on the cross He would pay the punishment for all the bad things we do: the way we mistreat each other and the way we so often don’t properly honour God.
On the cross, out of love for us, Jesus takes that punishment on himself and restores a relationship with God for all who will trust in what he did.
Now that is something worth celebrating, Happy Easter everyone!
In Christ, Tory Cayzer
