Easter Sunday….

Christ is risen.

He is risen indeed.

Do you keep lists of all wrongs done to you and all your gripes?

God wants your list. He inspired Paul to write ‘Love does not keep a record of wrongs’ 1 Corinthians 13:5

God wants us to leave our list at the foot of the cross. I know its not easy. ‘just look what they did to me’ you cry. ‘Just look what I did for you’ He replies.

Take your lists to the cross. You don’t really want to be looking at them anyway. Spend your time at the cross looking at the pieces of Christs passion.

Rub your thumb over the tip of the spear. feel the weight of the nail in the palm of your hand. Read the sign – its written in your language. Touch the dirt at the foot of the cross, still red from the blood of Christ.

Its the blood he bled for you and me.

The spear he took in the side for us.

The nails that bore him for us.

The sign left for us. He is King of Kings.

He did all of this for us. Knowing this and all he did for you. Think of all he will do for you. Give thanks He is risen. He is risen indeed.
