Happy Easter Everyone! Christ is Risen! This morning at church, the Pastor asked us to describe Easter in one word, and there were a lot that people came up with; Glorious, Redemption, Alive, Freedom, Deliverance, Fulfillment, etc. But, the one word that he used to preach on was Hope. The Cross and the empty grave have given us such Hope.
Also, in Sunday school this morning we watched a video by Louie Giglio called ‘Fruitcake and Ice Cream’ all about Grace. It was beautiful how he described what Christ did for us on the Cross.
God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Cor. 5:21
Wow. God made Jesus Christ, who faced temptations of every kind and yet was without sin, to become my sin for me, so that I might become the righteousness of God. That is Grace. Louie defined Grace as God at work since the opposite of Grace is ‘us at work’. With Grace, we cannot do anything, God does it all, and that is amazing.
We will never understand Christ being a great Savior unless we understand ourselves to be great sinners.
Our God is Mighty to Save. I hope that you each had a blessed day, and that you remember Hope, and remember Grace.
