As a child, I suppose my favorite holiday was Christmas. An explanation probably isn’t necessary, right? What child doesn’t love Christmas?But now I am 42 years old…the reality that life can be hard and painful and that we all have an appointment with death can no longer be ignored. This is why I now love Easter more than any other holiday. I know that without Christmas, there would be no Easter. I know that the reason Jesus became a man was to die. As God, he could not die for sinners. But as man he could. Good Friday was possible because of Christmas.
Made sin, He sin o’erthrew:
Bow’d to the grave, destroy’d it so,
And death, by dying slew. – SpurgeonDeath loosed both of my parents last year, and they flew to their Savior. Death was their fiery chariot that took them to His side. It was the gentle voice of their King, saying, “Friend, come up to Me now, come Home.
Have a blessed Good Friday and Resurrection Day from the Sixteen:Fifteen family! We are because He is!
