Eyes That See
When we look beyond the ham for Easter dinner, beyond the coloring of Easter eggs, beyond the Easter egg hunts, beyone the bunny cakes, okay beyond even the Easter Bunny himself, we see Our Resurrected Lord, triumphant with His victory over sin and death. What a boon for us this great event has accomplished! Now we have the opportunitiy, contingent upon our keeping the commandments, to live eternally with Our Maker, the Lord God Almighty.
Like all who preceded Him, He lived, but unlike all who preceded Him, He rose from the dead!
It would be well to recollect that Jesus doesn't make up the difference, He IS the difference! The debt has already been paid for our sins, faults, and failings.
Too many of us give up because we keep making mistakes. At this point, it is critical to remember that our God is understanding and long suffering to those who are trying to do good. Perfection or giving up are not the two options.
Always reflect on the fact that Jesus is not waiting for us at the finish line.
Rather, He is with us every step of the way.
This is the reason for the season.
Happy Easter! Happy Spring!
