As We Aproach Easter For me Easter is one of the most holyiest times in our Christian Faith . It is a time of great devotiom , reflection, sorrow and pain ending with a triumphal , joyous resurection on Resurection Sunday . Picture with me the agony of the Cross - Picture yourself standing with the croud . What do you see ? I see the Precious Lamb of God , hanging on a wooden cross , lonely , full of pain as this is one of the most gruesome ways to die . This was a very slow and painful death , killing the person with agony . Victims would simply go into shock and remain barely alive. . As we stand gazing at the cross , how do we approach ? Are we standing in fear or in awe , amazed by the significance of God's only Son's suffering . Or do we come near the cross with humble adoration and gratitude? 1 Peter 2:24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.
