Sen. Cruz: At Easter, We Celebrate That Jesus Paid the Price for Our Sins  

HOUSTON, Texas — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) issued the following statement in observance of Easter:

“At Easter, we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the joy of knowing that Jesus paid the price for our sins so that we can live in fellowship with God.

“Heidi and I wish you and your family a very Happy Easter, and hope that on this weekend you will remember the message of Luke’s Gospel:

And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High;

for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him,

to give his people the knowledge of salvation

through the forgiveness of their sins,

because of the tender mercy of our God,

by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven

to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death,

to guide our feet into the path of peace.”
