About 2000 years ago

Their own soul could heal
Our shame was deeper than the sea
Your grace is deeper still"
-"Who alone can rescue" By Matt Redman

Do you realize that about 2000 years ago on this exact weekend, Jesus Christ was betrayed and Crucified? It just now hit me and it's mind boggling to think that right now he could have been praying in the garden asking God for another way out...to think that He was fully human....He was really experiencing all the pain and anguish we would experience. Then to realize that at that same time, He was fully God....He could have backed out or changed things with the blink of an eye.....BUT HE DIDN'T. We deserved hell, we deserved eternal anguish, BUT GOD loved us so much that He sent the ultimate sacrifice. We deserve nothing-in fact we owed our lives, BUT GOD loved us. Thank you Jesus for that "but"...and that is why we are celebrating this Easter season. Because of that 'but' right there.

That is what is going through my head in this Easter season. I am realizing that it isn't about me, it was never about me-but instead it is about how flippin awesome our Jesus is!! I don't want Christ to have died in vain...I want my life to reflect His goodness so that He gets the glory He deserves. That one single act of sacrifice is enough for me to praise Him my entire life...yet He blesses me with more. Jesus Christ is incredible. period. end of story.

Sunshine of the day: Jesus Christ saved my soul!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
