These past few months have really flown by for me. We have gone from October Harvest , Thanksgiving,  to Christmas. Then we started a New Year, flew into ValentinesDay, St. Patrick's Day, and now it's already Easter. 

It's hard to believe that we are already at the end of March and celebrating April Fools Day for some of us tomorrow. 

Besides, Christmas , Easter is my  other favorite holiday .  On Christmas, we get to celebrate our Saviors Birth. And at Easter, we celebrate Jesus' crucifixion, death, and resurrection.   

The crucifixion  of Christ was a sad situation to have to take place. In doing so, we are reconciled back to our Heavenly Father because of sin we were separated from Him. Man is evil, but God is good. 

 The symbols of sacrifice have been in use since Adam and Eve stepped outside the Garden of Eden into the fallen world. Abraham obeyed God and was going to sacrifice his firstboe learn about the passover lamb.

The Passover lamb was the animal God directed the Israelites to use as a sacrifice in Egypt on the night. God struck down the firstborn sons of every household
 (Exodus 12:29). This was the final plague God issued against Pharaoh, and it led to Pharaoh releasing the Israelites from slavery (Exodus 11:1). After that fateful night, God instructed the Israelites to observe the Passover Feast as a lasting memorial 
(Exodus 12:14).

Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 5:7). The prophet John the Baptist recognized Jesus as “the Lamb of God” (John 1:29), and the apostle Peter links the lamb without defect 
(Exodus 12:5) with Christ, whom he calls a “lamb without blemish or defect”
 (1 Peter 1:19). Jesus is qualified to be called One “without blemish” because His life was completely free from sin (Hebrews 4:15). In Revelation, John the apostle sees Jesus as “a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain” (Revelation 5:6). Jesus was crucified during the time that the Passover was observed.

Jesus' blood was shed so that our sins would be forgiven. So that we would be reconciled back to our Heavenly Father and that we would not die and burn in hell for our sins.

If you haven't  already asked God into your life. I pray that you do today. He is there with His arms open wide, welcoming you back into a relationship with Him.

Happy Resurrection Day!!!
