Painted by Michael Bird this painting shows the amazing strength, power, love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
He died on the cross to pay our debt and buy our membership to Heaven, and provide the gift of Eternal Life…..He showed it by raising from the dead, defeating death, it has no hold those who believe in Him.
John 2:19….One day standing in front of the temple Jesus said “destroy this temple and I will raise it again in 3 days”. Those near Him, the religious people of the day, argued “it took 46 years to build this temple, and you are going to rebuild it in 3 days”. They didn’t realize He was talking about His own body.
Early Sunday morning Mary Magdalene and Mary Jesus mother came to the tomb where He laid, but found the tomb empty. A man (the Angel of the Lord) said “who is it that you are looking for” and they said “Jesus”. The man replied in…(Matthew 28:4)…. “He is not here He is risen like He said”.
Jesus beat death, death had no hold on Him, He died for us, to pay our debt and purchase our membership into Heaven.
His mercy grace, love and forgiveness are shown in this picture as He lifts up this man (us), it’s such a beautiful moment.
The true meaning of Easter is that God loved us enough to send His Son Jesus, to pay the debts, for our sins, and provide Eternal Life……This amazing gift has been paid for…..Forgive
