This is Love

We remembered and celebrated the death of Christ last evening with our church community through communion, prayer, reflection, and song. It was a beautiful evening to celebrate God's love and the beauty of the cross. I know that so many others have written much more poetic and reflective words about Jesus' death than I ever could, so I'll share a passage of Scripture I've been thinking of during this Easter season:

This is how God showed his love among us: he sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. (1 John 4:9-10)
