I have typed and deleted 3 Facebook posts so far this morning… Lots stirring in my head and heart. It’s a big week for Jesus – He really wants to meet with those He died for who still don’t realize how very much they are loved by Him.
Over the years, there have been quite a few difficult relationships – some pretty intense – that I have chosen to pray over, hold on to, and in some cases probably stay in for far too long, because of that love.
When we finally go home and find our place in eternity, I don’t want to look back and regret not having given my all to those around me. The bible says it’s His will that NONE would perish – but that ALL would come to a saving knowledge of Him. I love my God, I love what Jesus did to love me, and it’s my heart to have His heart.
I desire all to find the infinite and unconditional love of God as well.
This week is the last week before Easter. 2000-some years ago, Jesus spent this week preparing for His death – a death that would free us all from the bondage of sin and death; giving us a hope for an eternity and so much more than what this world offers. It’s a big week and no wonder my heart is so passionate.
If you are a Christ-follower who has found a life of faith to be healing, hopeful and restorative, please do not hesitate to extend your heart and hospitality to a friend or family member who does not have a church to attend this Sunday. And, if you have ever wondered about Jesus, or God, or this crazy belief that some of us adhere to, please consider attending a service and opening up your spirit to the possibility of a loving God who gave His Son on your behalf.
Easter is all about love. Give a little today…
