The Passion of the Christ is a movie about the last days of Jesus. I have been able to watch the movie once. It is so real in the depiction of His death and resurrection it’s difficult to watch. I was amazed at the number of people moved by the movie in the theater when we went to see it. There were a lot of people openly weeping…never heard or saw anything like it.
Even today, when I think about the beatings, pain and humiliation Christ suffered for us, it brings me to tears. To think our Father would sacrifice His only son so that we could be reunited with Him is overwhelming. Can you imagine, in your wildest dreams, allowing your son or daughter to be offered up as a sacrifice for someone else? My mind can’t even go there.
Today is the beginning of the Easter celebration. The video below is a reminder of what our Father allowed and what Christ did for all of us. The blessings it’s brought to our lives are immeasurable.
