It is Holy Week and we are preparing for Easter. What does that mean to you? Easter means everything to my heart and soul. To have someone love me so much that they endured the beating and death on the cross for me…whoa! I rejoice at the cross, knowing that my savior Jesus Christ died and rose again. The tomb is empty and he is alive!! He lives in me and walks daily with me. He loves me and desires a relationship with me. He wants to talk with me daily. He cries when I cry and jumps for joy when I do. I am redeemed in Christ.
He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
“Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come and has redeemed his people.
As we take notice of Spring, the trees, flowers and earth coming alive out of it’s dormant stage, I hope that you search your heart and ask where have I been dormant? Do you need some renewal? Do you need a fresh start? Do you need to follow through with a commitment? Do you need a change? What is your need? Take it to the cross. Lay it at the base and humbly give yourself and it to God. He will meet you there.
I pray that you rejoice in our risen Savior. The rock is rolled away and Christ is alive!
