Reflection and Fast
Today is Good Friday, the beginning of our Easter weekend and the culmination of Lent. This has been a time of reflection and fast for many. This time of year causes me to just pause and evaluate my life and relationship with Christ. I choose to give up a little something to only slightly feel the impact of what Christ had to sacrifice for me. His sacrifice is one that I alone can never match, but my walk here can be for him! In the words of Paul found in 1 Corinthians 11:1, “Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.”
Celebrate the Life of Jesus
My words will not be the words that should be typed or read this weekend. Stop and read the resurrection story and celebrate the sacrifice and love Christ had for us all! This story can be found:
Each is story is powerful and shares how much Christ loves each one of us.
Easter is like a New Year. I feel a sense of renewal. A reminder of my walk and relationship and an opportunity to make it stronger. Let the gospel work. I pray you stop and read. Stop and Listen
Closing Verse: Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” John 11: 25-26
