Spiritual Sundays


Hello friends and welcome to another Spiritual Sundays with Charlotte and Ginger. Please visit these lovely ladies to be refreshed and encouraged. http://bloggerspirit.blogspot.com/

Today I would like to share the following by a favourite author of mine, Max Lucado.

HIS NAME IS JESUS

HIS BIRTH
Jesus...
He could hold the universe in His palm
but gave it up to float
in the womb of a maiden.
Christ became one of us.
and He did so to redeem all of us.

HIS MISSION
Jesus...
The man...
who spoke with such thunderous authority
and loved with such childlike humility.
The life of Jesus Christ
is a message of hope,
a message of mercy,
a message of life in a dark world.

HIS DEATH
Jesus...
The palm that held the universe
took the nail of a soldier.
On the eve of the cross,
Jesus made His decision.
He would rather
go to hell for you
than go to heaven without you.

HIS RESURRECTION
Jesus...
the moment He removed the stone,
He removed all reason for doubt.
Christ's resurrection
is an exploding flare
announcing to all sincere seekers
that it is safe to believe.

-Max Lucado

We have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. I John 2:1

Happy Easter to all my friends everywhere and God bless you!

Isn't it marvelous Sandi - to know God so loved us that He gave His only begotten Son - that whosoever believes in Him should not perish - but have everlasting life.
What a joy - to know He's alive and He loves us so very much,
Hope you have a blessed Sunday and Easter,
Kathy

Beautiful post today! I am amazed at the love of Christ! It still is hard to grasp that He loved us so much that He suffered and died so we may live. I am so glad He lives in me today! Happy Easter to you and yours! Anne

Beautiful~ without His resurrection we would have no basis or merit for our faith, yet He has risen, praise Him!

Max Lucado always has the words to bless me. Thank you for sharing this. So thankful for Jesus' birth, mission and death. But without His resurrection He'd be like any other god. My God is alive!

Rejoicing,
Pamela
