There are 40 non-sabbath days until Easter Sunday. The church sets apart Easter to celebrate and remember Jesus’ finished work on the cross—the work that conquered death.
Sin-filled people throughout time, people like me, celebrate this day because we have been offered hope through Christ’s death and resurrection. A future. Love from a perfect God. That makes Easter Sunday so beautiful!
But I often forget the backstory. I forget what the stakes were to redeem my soul from the pit of darkness into which I was born. This year in the 40 days leading up to the celebration of Christ’s resurrection, I want to focus intentionally on my need for Him.
I’m asking the Holy Spirit to soften my heart again. I want to draw my eyes toward the storyline of eternity and my need for an eternal Savior. Will you join me? I’m writing a new devotional for each one of these 40 days.
I don’t know what to expect in the next 40 days, but I know God is faithful to meet those who wish to know and experience Him in a deeper, more intimate way. That's me. How about you?
