Reflections on Easter


As we’ve recently cellebrated Easter in remembrance of our Lord’s death and ressurection, I just wanted us to reflect on a couple verses from the book of Isaiah.
Isaiah 1:18 says: “Come now, let us reason together,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.”
While studying this verse, I was convicted with the question: “What color is your life?” Even if we’ve accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior, we should still be considering this question and whether or not we portray the right colors to those around us.

Isaiah 53:5 says: “But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
As I consider this passage of Scripture, I am amazed by the fact that Christ loved us so much to take our sin upon himself. And in doing so, He gave us life and healing!
Although the a-nual cellebration of Easter is behind us, may we stop and thank God for his unfailing love and faithfulness every day.

What are your thoughts on these verses? Do you have a favorite verse about the the death and ressurection of Christ? If so, we’d love to hear about it and be able to share it with others. Please know that any feedback you send us may be featured on a future edition of the InHimCast podcast.
