Good Friday and Easter

More and more, people just see Good Friday and Easter as holidays and a time to eat lots of chocolate.

But Easter is so much more. Christians around the world spend time reflecting on the very great cost of the death of Jesus Christ. They also celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day.

Without the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, people are still trying to reach God. The story of Jesus Christ is God coming down to mankind. 

The public holidays provide the opportunity for you to find out more and make your own decision:

"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. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.  This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.  But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God. John 3:16-21 (NIV)

I encourage you to do your own research, seek answers, find the Truth.
