Today I am doing some final reading for my messages this Sunday & for Easter! So much happened on the cross and in the following three days that are life giving. To know the story is awesome – to live the story it is amazing! I know He broke the power of sin & death….I know that He was forsaken by God on the cross so I would not have to be! Incredible things to know!
In just a few minutes I will gather with a precious family that just lost their father. An awesome man who loved his family and was loved by His family. As heartbreaking as this day is – BECAUSE of the Cross & the Empty Tomb – they will see their dad again! Because Jesus conquered his sin and his being separated from God and he accepted what was done for him – their dad now lives forever in Heaven with the ONE who died in His place!
I can’t wait to get to be with thousands on Easter to share the awesome story of what Jesus did for us – but today I am thankful I get to stand with this family and share with assurance that they WILL get to see their dad again…..in a much better place!
