Easter is…
April 11, 2009

about Jesus, not  a bunny…an empty tomb, not a full basket…victory over death, not the start of spring…new life, not a new bonnet…forgiveness, not tulips.

This Easter remember that Jesus knows what it is like:

to be hungry
to be tired
to be lonely
to be hurt
to be hated
to be beaten
to be persecuted
to be misunderstood
to be mistreated
to be mocked and laughed at
to be betrayed by a friend
to be tempted to sin
to be responsible for employees
to feel forsaken
to feel hopeless
to have no spouse
to have no earthly father there to help
to have lost a loved one
to have to pay taxes
to have money stolen from you
to have the responsibility to provide for a family
to live under an oppressive government
to experience extreme pain
(plus so much more)

Jesus loves you — enough to die for you.  He  not only understands what you face, but He is able and willing to help you.

Call out to Him…He always will answer.
