It’s the time of year we focus a special celebration on the resurrection of Jesus. God’s Passover Lamb accomplished more than the most astute Jewish scholars even thought about.
His defeat of Satan and resurrection first into the earth, and then into Heaven – began a new era for mankind. If only people could believe it and walk in it.
He took what we deserve -our sin, our sorrows, our grief, our sickness, and gave us what He deserved – righteousness, joy, health, purpose.
What an exchange!
This year I purpose in my heart to walk in more of all that my Lord paid for.
More intimacy with Him. More vision and purpose. More health. More compassion for the lost. More love for others.
How shall I repay Him for all of His benefit toward me? I shall lift up the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord. (Psalm 116:12-13)
