We Christians believe that Jesus was crucified on the cross because of our disobedience and/or transgressions. Furthermore it is our faith that we were saved from the eternal death. But this is not sufficient; we must allow the Holly Spirit to reign in us.
Romans 8: 11 says “…… and if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead has made his home in you then he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your own mortal bodies through his Spirit living in you.”
Now, as we commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus let us remind one another that we should not do this as a mere traditional ceremony, no… Rather we are supposed to take an opportunity to repent our sins so that we die and resurrect together with Jesus.
In fact the Bible tells us that every sin is forgivable. What we need is simply to accept that we are all sinners, and repent. Jesus said Luke 5:32 that “I have come to call not the upright but sinners to repentance.”
Jesus’s crucifixion is a proof of God’s own immeasurable love for us… The evidence is traced at Romans 5:8 where we read “So it is proof of God‘s own love for us, that Christ died for us while we were still sinners.”
Wishing all and sundry a meaningful period of Easter commemorations.
