Blessed Easter to All

The Lord is risen! He is risen indeed!


Because He lives ... we live with hope and promise and peace.



Hallelujah! And happy Easter.

Friday

This is what love looks like



“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.

(1 John 3:16a, NIV)




That’s why Good Friday is good indeed.

Because He died, we can live. His suffering bought our peace. His loss produced everlasting gain. And His darkest days led to eternal light and glory.


Hallelujah. Easter is just around the corner.

Sunday

Does God favor frailty?



Could it be true? Is it possible that the Almighty God actually desires the debilitated? Is He fondest of the faint? Could the Lord prefer people who are powerless?

What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all!
(Romans 9:14, NIV)


God is fair and impartial.

OK, we get that. The Bible says so.

He doesn't care how great a person may be, and he pays no more attention to the rich than to the poor. He made them all.
(Job 34:19, NLT)

For God does not show favoritism.
(Romans 2:11, NIV)


Despite what the popular (and somewhat irritating) tee shirts say, claiming “God loves everyone, but I’m His favorite,” the Holy One is wholly fair and adores each one of us more than we can imagine.

Still, is there something inherently special in God’s eyes about those who are feeble, fragile, infirm, rickety, shaky, spent, and even wavering?

Maybe so.

After all, it is only when we are out of gas that we may be refilled.



God is attracted to weakness. He can’t resist those who humbly and honestly admit how desperately they need him. Our weakness, in fact, makes room for his power.


What a great God we love, who desires nothing more than to supply for our shortcomings, perfect our imperfections, and save us from ourselves.

Saturday

Today is 3:16 Day -- Gotta love it!



March 16 is 3:16 Day.


What a wonderful reminder of God's promise of His love for the whole world.


“For God so loved the world
that He gave His one and only Son,
that whoever believes in Him
shall not perish
but have eternal life.
John 3:16, NIV

Come to think of it, every day is 3:16 Day.


Thank God.
