Sacrifice Beyond Comprehension

Jesus, Son of God, Savior sent to teach, love, and die for all who choose to believe. The Easter story, not one of coloring eggs and the Easter Bunny, is a story of love. Lost in secular celebrations is the very fact that over 2000 years ago God sent His only Son to live on this earth to refocus His people and provide the users manual for how to live your life. He did not allow the naysayers to change his focus. Those that chose their own concept of religious activity were revealed for who they were. Yet, when they chose to eliminate Jesus from this earth, fulfilled the prophesy for which He was sent…to save our lives for eternity.

It’s so easy for us to not want to think about the gift that we were given, as it happened so long ago and our current lives are far from the time. It would be a mistake, however, to look past this sacrifice that was made so that all who are blessed to live on this earth have a chance to learn from Jesus’ teaching and through their acceptance of Him, shall have an everlasting life.

It’s important to note that the acceptance of Jesus is not just making a statement, but its a commitment to following His teachings and use the time we have on this earth to live the life we profess, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It’s not about being a “go to Church on Sunday, Christian” and then set aside your faith for the rest of the week. It’s a life commitment to use Jesus’ teachings to make the world a better place while you have the chance to impact those around you.

Take some time this weekend to reflect on the life of Jesus. He provided the blueprint for how we are to live our lives. Never in His teachings did he allow any outside influence ever effect His focus on loving people. He was not politically correct, He was real and on message all the time. Current policies, traditions, and actions of those in power did not deter his compassion for people. Our lives are a journey and Jesus provided the perfect example for us to follow as we live out our time on this earth. He was on a mission, and we are to be missional in our focus to make our impact on those around us. Soon our time will come to and end. What will the impact be that you have made while you had your chance. Jesus saved the world, its not our calling to make that happen, but we are to do what we can with the gifts that God has provided to bring His love to all we can reach.

Happy Easter!
