Scripture & Thought
Luke 19:10 – “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
Easter is not about eggs and wearing pastel colors. That’s all fine, but that isn’t what Easter is about. It’s about Jesus wanting a relationship with you!
Jesus was born to die—and to rise again. That was the reason for the Incarnation. On the cross, Jesus faced the judgment of God. He took the wrath of God upon Himself.
It’s why He cried out, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” which means, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
He was bearing all the sin of the world, including your sins and mine, by dying in our place. That is why He came.
Jesus talked about it all the time. He was on a mission to go to the cross of Calvary. His life was not taken from Him; He willingly gave it up for us.
Nails did not hold Jesus to that cross. Love did—love for you and love for me. He died for us.
You need to realize that Jesus died on the cross for you. And then you need to repent of your sin, which means a change of direction. It means turning away from it. Next, you must receive Christ into your life. You must ask Jesus to be your Savior and your Lord.
No one else can do this for you. This is a decision you make. And eternity hinges on this decision.
Easter is not about eggs, brunch and wearing pastel colors. It’s about Jesus wanting a relationship with you!
Prayer: Dear Lord, Jesus Christ, we just want to take the time to say “Thank You!” for coming to this earth and dying in our place, for our sins! We could never thank you enough for ALL that you’ve done for us, and are doing for us! Even now, in the midst of this pandemic, we know you have it all under control, and will see us through to the very end! We TRUST you, Lord! Amen.
