Last night at our small group, we did just like Jesus did on His last night with His beloved Twelve.
I led our group in our own version of The Last Supper. We shared a meal together, then had a non-religious, but self-examining (I Corth.11:27-30) Communion in remembrance of Jesus, followed by a foot washing.
Last night was a special, holy time. Jesus met needs. Some very deep emotional wounds were healed.
Tears of pain, tears of gratitude flowed.
This is what "Easter" is all about. Jesus going to His Cross for you. For me.
Our sins are forgiven because of His Blood that He willingly allowed to be shed.
Our bodies and souls are healed because of the torture He endured.
And because He is alive, we too, can live eternally.
No religion here. Just Truth. Just freedom. Just pure, extravagant Love poured out to mankind.
Now, that is "Easter".
May your celebration of The Resurrection be joyous because of your gratitude! Pour out extravagant love back to Him, as did Mary, who anointed Jesus with costly oil and wiped His Feet with her hair. May you be extravagant in your expression of gratitude as Jesus was in the display of His Love toward you. God bless you and your family as you celebrate!
Because of Him and Unto Him,
