I’m rejoicing at this season of rebirth. Everything becomes new. It is a season of remembrance and celebration. Our hope is in Christ, who strengthens us. He overcame all things, including death, that we might live again with our Heavenly Father after we die because of Christ’s resurrection. (He paved the way for the rest of us.)
To live in God’s presence and be comfortable there, we must also humble our hearts and be cleansed from the effects of the choices we have made that are out of alignment with God’s will and laws (sin). In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus Christ took upon himself the sins of the world so WE might not suffer if we sincerely repent, ask forgiveness, make restitution, and change our ways. Because of Christ, we can be forgiven and cleansed from sin and the guilt, sorrow and disappointment that accompanies it. Each and every person can then become spiritually alive again through the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ-who made repentance and forgiveness possible.
Just think of it. Each day is a new beginning. Our worth is great in the sight of God. He (Heavenly Father) loved us so much that He sent his Son. Jesus Christ (His Son) loved us so much that He gave his life to make all this possible for US. We are blessed. We are loved. We are important.
I posted this wonderful video in remembrance of Jesus Christ. I am grateful for His teachings of joy and hope and healing–and also for His sufferings which were endured for a higher purpose.
