Galatians 2:20, "I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me."
Easter season is the most wonderful time of the year for me because it is a delegated time that we collectively position our sight on the Cross and our minds on the ultimate sacrifice that Christ gave for us to receive eternal life. As a child, the sacredness of the season did not resonate with me. Like most children, I was excited about getting my hair done, getting an Easter basket and a very expensive dress that I wouldn't wear again. As a matured believer, the weight of the day and the message of the Cross holds a special place in my heart. I find great joy in delivering the Message of the Cross to not only those in my women ministry, but to the people I meet along my journey. The Message of the Cross perspective will be translated differently through each of our personal experiences with God, but the overall theme is the same. Jesus hung, was crucified, bled and died for us and those who came before us and who will come after us. He looked beyond us and became a part of us. So as we commemorate the crucifixion and ultimate resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, take some time to tell someone about the goodness of the Lord and the sacrifices of Jesus. No matter what Cross you are having to endure in this season of your life, know that just like Jesus' Cross it's only temporary. The ultimate message and measure of the Cross is that whatever we go through is always only temporary, but the harvest of the Cross is eternally.
God bless you and may His grace continue to shine upon you!
