Easter is my favorite holiday. I love the beauty of the sacrifice, the agony of the wait while Jesus laid in the tomb, and the thrill and amazement of victory as He rolled the stone away and walked out.
The Resurrection story is so much more than a few verses of a song or lines of a child's poem. It's the very thing we crave, long for, require for Salvation, and yearn for: Life from death, mercies made new, a new creation, beauty from ashes.
This Easter, while you're celebrating a resurrected Lord, allow Him to resurrect you. Lay down the dead and dying parts of your life and watch Him breathe new life into them.
The job you lost.
The child that strayed.
The parent that hurt you.
The spouse that cheated.
The diagnosis that rocked you.
The friend that betrayed you.
The drug that demands your soul.
The sin that won't relent.
The thing that won’t let go.
Lay it down.
And watch Him raise you back to life.
