to celebrate a simple Savior.
His death and sacrifice was any thing but easy or simple…
quite humbling, and painful, and sorrowful at best.
So what becomes the simplicity of Him who loves us enough to die for us?
His gift. His free gift to us. All we have to do is accept it.
To simply accept He is the son of God…
that he died for us (for you. and for me.)
…to accept His love in our lives. Who doesn’t want to be loved?
The real love. Beyond our flaws, our mistakes, our sins…
that unconditional love.
Hey! Are you listening?
You, yes you…
God cares; YOU matter.
Have you accepted His gift?
and just as we stained these eggs,
the sins of the world (our own and others inflicted upon us) have stained us.
The Good News?
God can peel back the outer shell, washing us clean on the inside, with a renewed spirit.
May love and joy and peace be abundantly within your heart this beautiful spring!
I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
