The day God took our place.

One of the names Jesus has is ‘Lamb of God’ [John 1.29]. The story of the birth of Jesus which we remember at Christmas means nothing without the accompanying story of His death which we remember at Easter. The lamb was the sacrificial animal that we first see rescue Abraham’s promised son in Genesis 22 and then later see taking our place when Jesus dies on the cross.

The joy of Christmas must be held alongside the heartache and joy of Easter as God made an eternal way for us to be with Him again.
