Easter is a day to remind Christians of our freedom! Freedom to live our lives knowing that when we die here on earth, we will be born into eternity!
Wow, what a mind-blowing gift!
And yet, if we take a look at our everyday lives, you might notice that you really have not rolled the stone away from the tomb. Some days I find myself living as if the stone was never rolled away. What about you?
To me, I use Easter as my “Spiritual New Year.” Asking myself…
Was I mindful each day of God’s purpose for my life? Or did I only call on God and live as Jesus taught, when it was beneficial to me? These are some tough questions for me. Because, my soul usually answers honestly and brings to mind events when it was all about me.
Along with questioning my last year, I begin to make a few spiritual resolutions for the coming year too. And this year my biggest resolution is to live each day with the stone rolled away. For I am not promised tomorrow and building a storehouse of things, people, and situations wastes my precious time. My gift from Jesus!
As I try to roll the stone away, there is a moment of brilliance…
JESUS HAS ALREADY DONE IT!
So, what am I doing?
My job is to live it!
What about you? Could you utilize the “Good News” of Easter Sunday to do some spiritual housecleaning in your soul?
And do you live each day with the stone rolled away?
If not, Easter Sunday is the new beginning! A newly cleansed beginning!
God Bless You! And God Bless America!
