When my hubby and I were off during the Easter holidays we took a little trip together. It was lovely but one thing really struck me as we walked around and visited some of the places.
This was the scene in more than one church/place of worship. You see it was the week before Easter - known as Passion Week and the Roman Catholic Churches we visited all had their crucifixes covered because "Jesus isn't on the cross yet" (reply from one of the guides when I asked!!)
It struck me as sad that the rest of the year they portray Him still on the cross with their crucifixes, yet cover Him during Passion week.
I'm here to remind you that the cross is as EMPTY as it was during Passion week! He isn't there anymore - in fact He was only there for one day - Good Friday.
We need to remember that He died, was buried and on the third day HE ROSE AGAIN - so not only is the cross EMPTY but so is the tomb!!!
So then next time you think about Him - while it's wonderful to remember what He did for us when He died for our sins on the cross - please remember He's not there anymore - He's alive!!!
Keep shining xx
