For eternal life
Tomorrow (Good Friday) Christians around the world will be focusing on the death of Our?Lord and?Saviour Jesus Christ. But as we do so let us remember what took place before his death.
He was welcomed in Jerusalem. But that welcome and goodwill did not last too long, for in a few days those same people had turned their backs against him.
Such behaviour is very common in everyday life because when there is a crisis, those persons who we expect to be there for us are the ones who forsake us.
As we celebrate Easter, let us not forget that Jesus died for our sins. By His death he has destroyed death and by His rising to life again He has won for us eternal life.
