Happy Easter!

Hello, Friends! I hope you all had a fulfilling Lenten season. I’m back online. And on such a glorious day! I will keep this post short, as I know many will be spending this day in a special way. Today I want to take a few minutes to thank Jesus for His sacrifice. Will you join me?

Dear Jesus, this day brings so many feelings. Awe and gratitude don’t even scratch the surface. We are so thankful for what You did for us. But our words feel inadequate. How can we thank You enough? We were lost, yet You did the unbelievable to rescue us. What love You poured out for us! May praise be on our lips, not only today, but every day. You deserve all glory. We can never thank You enough. You paid the price we could never pay. You rescued us and redeemed us. Thank You, Jesus, for the cross. But not only did You save us from hell, which is astonishing enough. It is so much more than that. We are now joint heirs with You. We have been adopted into God’s family. We are now beloved children of our Heavenly Father. What a treasure we have in this relationship. We have a companion with us each day. We have someone who is always there for us, who always hears us, and who always sees us. We have a Shepherd who guides us each day. And we have someone who is working on our behalf at all times. We have so much to be thankful for – today and every day. We praise You and we love You, Jesus. In Your beautiful name we pray, Amen.

If you have never accepted Jesus as your Savior, I invite you to do so today. If you want to know how, you can say the prayer found here.

Easter really is the greatest day in history. In the words of Dr. Charles Stanley, “…the Lord’s work on the cross [is] the single most important and amazing event in history.” Let us spend the day with gratitude and praise on our lips. Let us thank Jesus for His sacrifice.

I hope you enjoy the song below. I believe it is a powerful reminder of what Easter means to us. And I hope you have a Happy Easter!

    • Happy Easter, my friend! Thank you! I’ve been trying to catch up and read your series on the book of Numbers (and your other posts outside the series). I just might not comment on all. But I am reading. I’ve missed our fellowship!
