School April 5th, 2012
Today I was walking through Shoppers looking for last minute Easter eggs, but I ended up in the pet section wondering if I should buy Darcy an Easter treat. She’s pretty cute but also pretty bad so I ended up not buying one. But I did over hear this:
“Can I have this candy, Mom?”
“No, honey. Remember, Easter isn’t even a big deal.”
Not. A big. Deal.
I am stunned by those words. They break my heart. Not a big deal?
Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, walked the earth for 33 years, lived a human life, full of human pain and suffering and temptation and lived it perfectly, free of sin. He left HEAVEN and His Father, God, Creator of the Universe to come to save us from our sins. He came as a sacrifice to cover all the sins of all time. His hands and feet were nailed to a cross of wood, a crown made of thorns pushed on his head. He was mocked, beaten, executed. For me. For you. Because He loves me. Because He loves you.
He made a way, He closed the gap between fallen man and the Almighty God. God loved the world SO much that He sent His one and only Son as a sacrifice that we might not perish, but live forever in the presence of God. Of God. Of the God that knit us together in our mother’s womb. Of the God that made the infinite universe.
My heart is so full of feeling toward my Saviour, my King this Easter that I can’t even put it into words. I will never fully comprehend how hard or how much it cost to do what Christ did on that cross, what God did by sending Him there. But my heart is forever grateful and indebted.
At the cross I bend my knee
Where your blood was shed for me
There’s no greater love than this.
You have overcome the grave
Your glory fills the highest place
What can separate me now?
You tore the veil
You made a way
When you said that it is done.
