Happy Easter, everybody! I am so grateful that I get to celebrate the real deal on Easter.
Jesus is more than bunnies, eggs, chocolate bunnies, chocolate eggs, baskets, chicks and Peeps. While I enjoy each of these things (although not this year…see previous post) I am so glad that Jesus means more to me than all of them.
His sacrifice is more than just a lighthearted treat. It was a deep, heavy sacrifice that He walked through.
It was more than ham and pineapple stuffing…He became the Bread of Life.
Jesus overcame death, not just for him, but for us too…which is even more than what I'll walk through when He heals all of my bodily ailments.
He is these few, few things, and so much more.
It's not just about randomly going to church this one time a year, but about serving Him everyday with our thoughts, our actions, our confession, our faith.
The story of Jesus' life, death and resurrection is more than just a story. It's a journey of God's physical being on earth…Him living life like us…only in a sinless fashion.
The beauty of the the cross is filled with pain and suffering. It's filled with anguish and yet LIFE flowed gloriously.
Everything I once held dear, I count as loss…Lead me to the cross…Rid me of myself, I belong to You…
