As you know... Today is Easter. I think Easter is one of my very favorite holidays of the whole year. I think because I am a pretty anxious person who needs reassurance constantly, today is great for me. All day long I am continually reminded of what my One True Love did for me. What the God of the whole world did for me. I cannot even begin to understand His everlasting love.
I have heard the "Easter Story" countless times in my life, but until about 8th grade, I don't think it really set in. My Savior died the most painful and agonizing death EVER. For me. For this whole screwed up world. Why?!? One word: Love. Like 1 John 4:19 says, "We love because Christ loved us first." I will never understand this love that He has for me, but I will understand that it is ALWAYS there, and He is always there. Whether other people want to admit it or not, the Creator of this world, the only perfect man to ever walk the earth, LOVES them unconditionally. Even through their crud and selfishness, HE loves them. Don't fight it, accept it. :)
I hope that your Easter will be full of reassurance of the love that Christ gives to us.
John 11:25-26 "Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me will have life even if they die. And everyone who lives and believes in me will never die.'"
First. Jesus Christ is my One True Love. His love for me is unconditional, and for that I am eternally grateful... I am His, and He is mine.
Second. My family and friends are incredible, and I'm not sure what I would be without them.
Third. I'm trying to: Live like Christ, and for Christ, Follow HIS plans, and rely on HIM for everything.
Psalm 34:18. :)
