Dear Friends, “He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement that bought our peace was upon Him and by His stripes we are healed” Isaiah 53:5 Easter is a most sacred time in the Christian calendar when we commemorate the sacrificial death and celebrate the triumphant resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. His victory over sin, death and hell means we have a certain hope of eternal life. How do we know for sure that Jesus is alive? Because He lives in us! Whilst on a visit to Edinburgh last weekend I approach a stand on a street corner where someone was giving away free copies of the Koran, as I approached the stand and before I said a word he said: “Your a Christian and you’ve come to debate with me about the faith”. I wasn’t wearing any of my faith jewellery that day so I smiled wondering how he could tell I was a Christian; Is it so obvious? Could he see Jesus in me? We talked about the similarities of our shared ‘Abrahamic faiths’, but when we spoke about Jesus he found it impossible to comprehend how God could allow His only son to die as a sacrifice for everyone, even the worst of sinners… “That my friend, I said, is the mystery of grace, that even the most underserving of us can be redeemed through faith because of the supreme incomprehensible to the human mind, sacrifice of Christ which we celebrate at Easter.
