What my sisters and I are wearing:
“God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.'”
I love this quote by Billy Graham, for truly, this the whole meaning behind Easter. We never need to look any further than the cross in questioning how great the Father’s love for us is. God loved us so much that He chose not to leave us in our sin, separated from Him for eternity in the punishment that we deserved. Rather, He sent His only Son who knew no sin to become sin and die a gruesome, horrific death on the cross so that we might be reconciled with God! But, the best news of all is that Jesus didn’t stay in the grave, for if He had, all hope would have been lost, but rather, on the third day He rose and now all who believe in Him can have eternal life and are adopted into the family of God! I will never be able to fathom the kind of love that drove God to do such a great thing for me, but I will forever be grateful for this great love of His!
I have been loving the song Reckless Loveand thought I would share the lyrics of the chorus here today for Easter as they are so perfect for today:
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God. Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine. I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, still you gave yourself away. Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God.
Happy Easter sweet friends!
