Today is the first day of the Easter season. It is commonly known of as Lent. It is the 40 day period that leads up to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
As you proceed through the next 40 days, think about why Jesus choose to die for you. He made a conscious choice to allow himself to be crucified. After all, He is part of the Godhead. He could have stopped it all, had he chosen to. He allowed it to happen because He loves you. In God’s eyes, we are seen as holy and blameless. We are seen as without sin because our sin was paid for by Christ. What an amazing life changing idea! The sinless son of God, willingly allowed himself to be crucified because He loved me.
Begin to recognize how much God values you. You are important to him. You are a child of the living God. Do you know that? Do you live like that? Are you walking with confidence and humility that you have been bought with a price, that your life has been redeemed, and that you are someone special in God’s eyes.
