But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5 NIVUK)

And so nothing can ever be the same……it was for me and my mess ups that Jesus suffered and died and so I can never say well, I am not that bad – they were bad enough for him to be pierced and so I need not belittle them! Easter will never lose its impact!

Lord your love is more wonderful than I can say and the price you paid is just extraordinary…….
