"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16, New International Version
That sums it up: God gave his only son to be born in Bethlehem, to live on this earth teaching and healing, to die on the cross for our sins and his body placed in the tomb, and He arose from death to live again, just for us, if we only believe.
So while we enjoy the Easter weekend with Easter Sunday Service, bunnies, eggs, and candy; let's praise God and thank Him for his Son.
P.S. My kids still take pictures with the Easter Bunny. This is Jennifer at work at the hospital posing with Bunny...
