Have a beautiful Easter celebrating the Love of Our Risen King!
I love the ALME Easter tradition of sharing this post with you…
At church we sing a song called “We Exalt Thee”. It is a wonderful, older song, and many artists have performed it throughout the years. Not long ago, as I was singing it to The Lord, I was thanking Him for all that He has done in my. My mind drifted back to when I very first became a Christian. I could see myself singing the very same song at a meeting many years ago. The chorus is, “I Exalt Thee. I Exalt Thee. I Exalt Thee, Oh Lord”. I, however, sang a different refrain; “I Am Sorry. I Am Sorry. I Am Sorry, Oh Lord!!!”, over and over again. Tears streamed down my face as the shame of my past and a focus on my failings prevented me from hearing the true words of the song.
You see, I didn’t yet realize what Jesus had done when He chose to die for me on The Cross. I didn’t know that as He received the wounds as they lashed His body, He brought healing to my life. I didn’t know that when they pressed the crown of thorns into His head, every unkind word of judgment spoken against me, both past and present, would be rendered powerless when I presented them to Him. That as He suffered on The Cross, He bore the weight of my every sin. I didn’t fully understand that when He conquered death and rose again, He gave me eternal life. Now I realize, that as He looked at me standing there weeping, He saw me as whole and forgiven because of His sacrifice on The Cross. Patiently He taught me who I really am. He wants do the same for you.
Sunday we will celebrate Easter. What a wonderful time to begin your new life with The Lord. He will walk with you daily as you experience His Great Love. He will set you free from your shame and fill you with joy as you sing praises to Him.
If you have never invited Jesus into your life, Easter is a great time to do just that. Just click on the following link : Opening The Door to invite Him into your heart.
This year there are many opportunities to attend an Easter service on-line. Talk to a Christian friend or acquaintance and ask them where they will be. If you don’t know anyone to ask, my family and I will be celebrating from our own homes at following link:
May The Lord bless you with the knowledge of how much He Loves You!
