This weekend is probably the most important celebration of the Christian faith. We celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, God's Son, and our Savior.
There is an old song that says, "And when I think that God his Son not sparing, sent him to die, I scarce can take it in. That on the Cross, my burdens gladly bearing, he bled and died to take away my sin."
I would like to share a few lines from the script I wrote for our musical. I hope it conveys my feelings about such a gift we have been given in Jesus.
"Can you comprehend the kind of love that prompted Jesus to leave heaven’s glory and the adulation he received there to come into this sewer called Earth? And, not only to live among us but die for us!
Can you comprehend the kind of love that would prompt God to send his Son into a backbiting, self absorbed, God hating world, to people who were more likely to use his name as a curse than acknowledge him as their Creator.
How could God love us that much?"
I can't comprehend it but I believe it to be true. Do you?
May we all embrace this astounding love, Gloria
