Just in case you forgot! I know everyday is the Lord’s and we remember Him moment by moment, but I can’t get over this time of year. I mean, God became a man whilst staying God and being man; and then He went on to pull off the most audacious rescue in all eternity. Forget muscly hero bursting in with big guns and clenched fists – this rescue was on a scale and dimension we can only point to. God went to a cross and died.

Jesus is the true passover lamb, and however you end up spending this Good Friday don’t forget to pause for just a moment to remember that God died so that we don’t have to. Once He was on the cross that was it for sin and death…

Talk more on Sunday.

Go well my friends 😀

The chocolate eggs, rabbits and Easter cards have been with us since February, and now the time is almost here it will be to a lot of people be a big ‘so what’. Even many Christians are uncertain about it; the very word Easter has it roots in paganism and fertility rights, hence the eggs and the rabbits.

And so it is with Easter, we can attach anything or nothing to the word and the season. Read more
