Easter salvation realization…. Apr 12

I think the increased peace of the Lord that I have recently gained in the mornings may re-start my writing, maybe only short windows of writing as I’ve actually asked for time to edit these 500 blogs, but either way it’s all praise… And pause… Jesus reminds us to pause and reflect on how we best follow Him… A daily reminder…   each morning is newly gifted, to restart our lives to serve the Lord the best we can…

Easter…. What does Easter mean to you? That’s the Facebook question a dear friend asked…. And that’s EXACTLY what Easter is – it’s all about YOU – because it’s all about God’s plan – and His plan is all about YOU, His children… Easter reminds us that daily we have a personal choice to follow Jesus… to believe in Him and also believe in and follow His teachings…

Then Jesus said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. Luke 9

To accept Christ, I first had to acknowledge that Christ was and is real…

And this also meant I had to and still have to realize that I am human, VERY HUMAN…. and that God made all of us human and loves us immensely even though we have human failings…

I have to humbly accept and know that I really need a Savior…. When I realize the immense LOVE He gave, and I get to live a new day for Him? That is when I feel the JOY…

Easter means the Lord Jesus humbled himself just for us… We could and should look to His example to pay attention to what God’s direction for our own lives is as well… I bet Jesus could have said – “hey, give me a few more years here to preach” – but God’s plan involved this short window of opportunity for Jesus, and Jesus accepted His Father’s Will… And since then spreading the Good News is a trickle effect of personal salvation realization – spreading the Good News has been tasked to God’s people – who require being moved by and relying upon the Holy Spirit…

Jesus is born anew for each person in their heart… It’s up to each person to realize Easter is a personal gift rather than a blanket free pass to the world… It’s individual realization…. One has to actually participate in reaching for Jesus – DAILY. We have to pick up our crosses daily – but Jesus is the ultimate savior – a tiny faith is a huge faith…. And He’s got you covered…

EASTER… Part of God’s plan… You are part of God’s plan…

God loves you. Jesus is there for you.

EASTER… Christ is Risen! We are SAVED… FOREVER…

HALLELUJAH!
