Every year I live, the meaning of this Holy week becomes more and more powerful to me. It is all about God’s great plan for us, through his Son, Jesus Christ. It is about Abundant Life here on this earth, and a future in Heaven with Him. Jesus said in John 10:10: “The thief comes to steal and destroy, but I have come, that you might have life, and have it more abundantly.” Isn’t that what we are seeking in our journey here on this earth? Haven’t we seen enough thieves in our lives, who’ve stolen our joy and our focus, our relationships, our purpose, our hope….and our abundance in this life?
Every year I live, I also realize more that this life is so short, and that I must be about my Heavenly Father’s business! I must find and do the things He wants me to do while I am on this earth. And I am finding that when I diligently seek to do His will for me, life becomes so much more abundant and fulfilling! I hope you will seek God in a special way this Easter, wherever your life may be right now, and that you will get answers to the things missing in your life. Every time I go to Him with my problems and concerns, He’s there! And I know he will be there for you. Celebrate the resurrected Christ this Easter, accept Him as your own. Let Him give you the new, abundant life He has just for you, and put you to work doing His Kingdom’s work!
And please keep all those in our community who are homeless in your prayers this week, and the Star of Hope too, as we seek to serve their immediate needs with God’s love and teach them about the future and the hope, that only He can give!
Blessings to you this Easter!
“And if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.” Isaiah 58:10
