We stand in awe and praise for our Lord Jesus. This is a special day as we celebrate Jesus’ victory over death. As our family has been reading the account in Matthew, I was struck by how Jesus felt before He went to the cross. He had feelings just like we have. “And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt” (Matthew 26:39).
It’s an overwhelming thought that Jesus’ blood makes us white as snow. What a miracle. “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isaiah 1:18).
