Lent is a time to reminisce the death and resurrection of Jesus, and most especially to be reminded of Jesus’ love for you and me.
Yes, this week overflows with Jesus’ love!!*
I’m very grateful to God that what can bring us closer to Him is not about how good we are nor about the good we do.
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ. –Ephesians 2:13
Our sin (failures, hopelessness) was great but indeed God’s love was greater.
God cannot stand being separated from us to the point of sending His Son Jesus who willingly gave His life for us. And when He rose again, He gave us access to God – access to true love, joy, contentment, security, hope and freedom. Jesus did not remain dead, but He resurrected! He is alive, friends!!! Our Jesus can hear and speak. Our Jesus is near, nearer than our breaths. Even in the lifeless of moments we encounter, none of it will be able to withstand the Life we have in us ❤
We were once hopeless, but now we have hope.
We were once broken, but now we are made whole.
We were once hurt, but now we are healed.
We once faced a day senseless, but now in Jesus we live with purpose, looking forward to living because of His great promises.
*P.S. God’s love overflows everyday~!!
