My son loves maths. He doesn’t get the gift from me but I am happy he has the gift all the same. This thought occurred to me a while ago but it seems appropriate to share now at Easter time. The question came to me … would it be possible to describe the good news of Easter through a mathematical equation. The short answer is no, the long answer is maybe if I’m allowed four equations … here is my attempt at Easter maths
Jesus + no sin = loved by God
Me + sin = not loved by God
Jesus + all our sin on the cross = not loved by God
Me + faith in what Jesus did on the cross was for me = loved by God
This is the kind of maths I like and it’s a gift we all can enjoy. Happy Easter!
