Easter is so much more than cute bunnies, easter baskets, pastel colors, colored eggs, baby chicks, and lots of candy. Easter is about new life. Life that’s been given to us that we don’t deserve and that came at a great cost.
There is no way I could live with out sin. I go to bed each night VERY aware of how I’ve failed my family, been a poor example of Christ to my children and haven’t served my husband in the way I’ve been called. There is no hope for me, but in Christ. BUT CHIRST. Those words are huge. That is what makes me different.
I am nothing and can be nothing on my own… BUT Christ.
I AM a failure to my family… BUT Christ.
I’m a hopeless case… BUT Christ.
I’m not worthy of mercy and grace… BUT Christ.
I can’t pay my debts for all my sin… BUT Christ.
This list could go on and should go on. The more I realize my failures, the large Christ becomes. The larger my sin, the more I see my need for Him. Daily I need Christ. Daily His sacrifice is covering my sin.
I’m ever grateful and ever joyful for the gift that cost a life, that was freely given to me. that is a costly gift… I would never give the life of my son as a gift for another and yet that is exactly what God did for me in the life of His Son. My life has been changed by Him.
Here is a great video that is worth your time!
