Redemption. Rescue. It's what Easter is all about.
As I slowly recover from OCD, I'm getting a little taste every day of what it is like to be rescued from the pit. And let me tell you, it's pretty awesome!
Jesus willingly came to Earth, lived a human life (with all of its pain and suffering), and then died on the cross in our place. That is unbelievably wonderful. Sacrificial love at its highest. But without the next part, it would make no difference to us. Three days later, He rose from the dead and conquered the grave for us all, and opened the doors to Heaven. THAT, my sweet friends, is what changed the course of history.
I'm wishing you the deep peace and joy that can only come from our Lord. May you feel the indescribable love of our Savior, Jesus, today and every day.
"because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9 ESV
