This window shows an Easter Lily with 3 blooms symbolic of the Trinity.

For the Christian, the Easter lily – the whitest of flowers – symbolizes Christ’s resurrection; it speaks of purity, of innocence, of being untainted by the world, and of new birth, such as when one comes to Christ. The trumpet-shaped flower hangs downward representing Jesus’ humility.

Philippians 2:6-8  Jesus had equal status with God but didn’t think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what.  Not at all.  When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human! Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn’t claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that—a crucifixion.

 


This window shows the city of Jerusalem. Outside of the city, Golgotha with its three crosses is visible. The middle cross holding Jesus – the light of the world – emanates light.

John 12: 27-28 “Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say?‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. Father, glorify your name!” Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.”

Amid the sorrow and pathos we feel contemplating the scene’s  image, let us joyfully remember the reasons He came:

1. “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10)
2. “For this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth.” (John 18:37)
3. “He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross.” (I Peter 2:24)
4. “The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28)
