Easter is right around the corner, and rather than run around like a crazy person trying to find just the right things to fill my kids’ Easter baskets – I’d like to just put everything on pause and reflect.
Really reflect and think. Think about what it must have been like for God to knowingly allow His precious Son to suffer such a horrible death.
And what it must have been like for Jesus. To be persecuted, humiliated, and hung on a cross – all for US.
Have you ever stopped to think about it? Would YOU be willing to send your Son to death in order to save a bunch of people that don’t even like you? That have turned their backs on you? That mock your very existence?
I have a son. And every time I think about God’s ultimate sacrifice – it makes me weep. Weep for the knowledge of just how unfathomable His love must be for us. To give up His only Son – for US. So that we might be saved.
Friends, I ask you to really give this some thought over the next few days. If you don’t know the Lord or have questions or comments – I would love to talk to you! Send me an email at christy @ theharperhouse . net (no spaces). God longs to know you if only you’ll let Him.
And to remind us of His awesome love and sacrifice, here’s a FREE PRINTABLE (8×10). Print it out or share it with your friends. Let us all remember and celebrate the true meaning of Easter this year.
UPDATE: This post was first published in 2016, but I wanted to repost it for all my new readers. And remind everyone that you. are. loved.
