A Message Worth Celebrating Everyday


Sunday at our church a sermon was preached. It was one of those sermons that you sit and listen to and you love it but at the same time feel sad because your loved ones aren’t there to hear it. Been there? The sermon was about the precious cross of Christ. The pastor led us through the human condition to make the point that there is a need for a savior. Each person is a sinner with an evil heart and bound for eternal separation from God in hell. Sounded pretty horrible.

But when he got to the good news of Christ and how He came for all to be saved. He shared that Jesus died for every person in this world because He loved. Just because He loved. The Father God allowed His Son to die a horrible death on the cross for US out of pure love. John 3:16

Then the pastor began to describe the love of God and all we have in Christ after accepting His gift of salvation. This is the first time tears have been brought to my eyes during a sermon in years. This message is the message I so want to hear. This message was powerful and at the end I did not see how every unbeliever in the room could possibly stay seated and not run to take this gift offered. However, pastor made it so simple there may have been many who grabbed hold of Jesus right there where they stood.

I left Sunday wanting more of God and envisioning the cross more clearly than I have in a long while. Easter is upon me but I want the celebration to stay within my heart every hour of every day not just one day a year. How about you?
