Were You There…?

Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree?
Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?

The season of Lent is over. The Last Supper has been eaten. And last night, we remembered the night our Lord was betrayed, arrested, beaten, mocked, humiliated, scorned and forsaken… nailed to a cross and left to die for sins He did not commit…

Fortunately, this is not the end of the story.

“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.” Romans 5:6-11

Were you there when He rose up from the dead? Sometimes it causes me to tremble… tremble… tremble… were you there when He rose up from the dead!
