Here is interesting article on the reason Jesus died for us.
On Easter we must not forget Good Friday. On Easter we must not forget that between Good Friday and Easter Jesus’ body lay in a tomb, bloody, and beaten. He would have been an ugly sight.
Death is ugly, and Jesus had taken our sins upon Himself. Jesus was dead in our trespasses and sins.
We must not forget that because we are sinners we each need the redemption Jesus offers us.
We must remember the reason for our hope and our joy. Jesus loves us.
