Pastor Bill's Reflections

Bill Young

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

Read: Romans 5:1-11

One of the most popular tourist attractions in England is the giant stone pillars of Stonehenge. These massive pieces of granite are also a great source of mystery. Every year, people travel to Stonehenge with questions such as: Why were they erected? Who accomplished this extraordinary engineering marvel? And perhaps we wonder most of all how they did it. But visitors leave having received no answers from the silent stones. The mystery remains.

The Scriptures speak of a greater mystery—the fact that God came to live among us as a man. Paul wrote in 1 Timothy 3:16, “Great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up in glory.”

This brief overview of the life of Christ—the mystery of godliness—is remarkable. What prompted the Creator of the universe to come and live and die for His creation, however, is not a mystery. “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8). God’s great love for us is at the root of the mystery of godliness, and the cross has made it plain for all to see.

As we move toward Holy Week, Maundy Thursday, and the cross of Good Friday we see how much God loves us in that He gave His only Son. And despite the pain and the sorrow of those events the victory comes on Easter morning with the resurrection. Christ died for us but now lives. Wow! That is good news. Come join us as we celebrate.

We may not understand everything God has done for us, or how He has done it. But we know God loves us and sent Jesus to die for us, and that is all we need to know. How Christ became a human being may be a mystery, but God’s love isn’t.

May the hope and peace of Easter bless you all!

Pastor Bill
