Tomorrow we will celebrate Easter. This Easter will be different than any of us have ever seen before, because life is different right now for every single person on the globe. While we are going through this unprecedented time, my hope is that this will draw us closer to the Lord. We will not get to do many of the things we normally do each Easter. We might not see as many Easter bunnies, egg hunts, and baskets filled with candy. I dare say, this Easter will be one that we will not soon forget. But perhaps if we approach Easter with the right perspective, we can spend our day focusing on Jesus and what He did for us on the cross. We can use our time to worship the Lord, remember what Easter is all about, and give Jesus our gratitude. Let’s take a moment to do that now. Let’s thank Jesus for what He did for us on the cross. Will you pray this Easter prayer with me?
How can we begin to thank You for what You did over 2,000 years ago? The words “Thank You” will never be enough. In fact, no words could ever fully express our heartfelt gratitude. We are deeply humbled to think about what You did for us and for all who would accept You. You, who knew no sin, took on the sin of the world. You knew each and every one of us would stumble and fall. But You still loved us all so much that you went to the cross for us. You paid our sin debt that we could never pay on our own. And as a result, you washed us clean. You made us as white as snow. You redeemed us from our sins. You saved us from death. You gave us the gift of salvation. You gave us the opportunity to have a relationship with You. And this relationship is more precious that anything we will ever know on this earth. Nothing compares to the price you paid for us. But today and everyday, we give You our hearts. We surrender all to You. We honor You. We worship You. We love You. You are our Redeemer, Provider, and Shepherd. We praise Your Holy Name. May our lips praise Your name every day of our lives.
In Your Holy Name we pray,
If you have never accepted Jesus as Savior, I invite you to do so today. If you want to know how, you can say the prayer found here. And if you need information on next steps after that, contact me here. This will be the best decision you ever make. This will bring true contentment into your life. And this will bring you hope. In these uncertain times, we all could use hope. And the only way to find true hope is through Jesus.
I pray you have a blessed Easter!
