Today our pastor, Mike Snyder, told a story about a father and son.
They were riding down the road in a car, and the son saw a bee buzzing. The boy was deathly allergic to bees and was terrified of it. The bee flew up by the dad, who reached out and caught it in his big hand. He held it in his hand for a few moments and then let it go. Once more the bee flew toward the child who grew upset again.
The father held out his hand, and showed his son the stinger.
Just as he took the sting of death for his child, Jesus took the sting of death for us.
Fear not, for He is risen.
I hope you all were able to celebrate our Lord today.
