This last weekend we celebrated Easter. As a kid I looked forward to an Easter basket filled with candy and small toys, a big meal and spending the day with family.
How time has changed; this year there were no baskets, no toys, and no big family meal. I do not think those things are bad we just chose not to focus on them. Instead I want to focus on my Savior, Jesus.
I believe that Jesus is the son of God, that He died and rose from the grave and ascended to heaven as the scriptures foretold.
I believe that his life and death paid the penalty for my sin, something I could never deserve or pay on my own.
I believe He did this because of His great love for us.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
I am not offended if you choose a different path. I won’t debate my beliefs, but I will not waiver. I don’t live out my faith perfectly. I fail miserably
sometimes all the time, but I am grateful that Jesus will not fail me.
