Without it, we could not gain access to our God and eternity in Heaven. I have read over and over this Easter season that if Good Friday had been the end of the story of Jesus, then all of his teachings and his life on earth would have been a really nice side note, a sweet spot in time, nothing else. And our faith in Christ would be for naught.
BUT DEATH DID NOT EXTINGUISH CHRIST'S STORY . . .
It was just the beginning to the most important event in human history. Our faith in Christ is rightly placed. God raised his son three days later. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16"
Christ died and rose for everyone. All can come to the cross and have life . . .
JESUS SAID, "I AM THE WAY AND THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME."
