Easter time is the time we remember what the Lord has done for us. It is central to the Christian faith. Without the Cross we have nothing. Without forgiveness we have nothing! Without His power over sin and death, we have nothing!
When Jesus took our sins upon that cross he did a complete work for you, and for me! We can add nothing to that work, or take anything away. It is a complete work. It is finished!
There is nothing we can do to earn favour with God or to earn our salvation. All we can do is seek His forgiveness, receive His redemptive love and every day pick up our own cross and follow Him.
