Each year, there are certain key holidays that most Christians celebrate. One of these is Christmas, when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ over 2,000 years ago.
Another is Good Friday, when we honor the day when Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins. And three days later, on the day we celebrate as Easter, Jesus rose from the dead! When Jesus Christ rose from the dead, He rose victorious over sin and death and hell. He conquered death for us!
Before He died, Jesus had ministered for three years in the country of Israel. He was born in Bethlehem and lived about 30 years before He began His public ministry. Then for three years He ministered; He taught; He performed miracles; He selected and ministered to His disciples and taught them how to minister to others. He healed the sick; He fed the hungry; He gave sight to the blind. It was a wonderful three years when He ministered on earth.
What is most amazing is that He came to earth to die for our sins. Even though Jesus is perfect and sinless, He took on Himself the penalty for the sins of the world. How great is the love of Jesus Christ!
