For Good-ness Sake

April 2, 2010

It is an incredibly beautiful Friday morning….new life is everywhere. The birds are particularly melodic as if they have a new song to sing and they are trying to get the words memorized. Fresh green sprouts are apparent on many trees, while others are in full white and pink bloom regalia. Fragrance pirouettes in the squeaky-clear air while fluffy tailed squirrels prance and skitter tree to tree.

Spring is all about life…and in the midst of all natures exuberance we are reminded today on Good Friday that Jesus died. Death is so initially brutal and separating…ahh, but the end result of our Savior’s death was/is endless opportunities. The opportunity to experience the indwelling Christ in our daily experiences, the opportunity to be released from the guilt and shame of our mistakes, failures, and sins and the security that we are never alone, that in Christ’s hands even the worst becomes the best for our lives, and that we have an eternal future.

It’s an incredibly beautiful Friday morning…and I understand why we call it Good

  9. “in Christ’s hands even the worst becomes the best” That brought tears to my eyes….I have been the worst of the the worst, but because of Christ, I am no longer who I was. Spring always reminds me of newness, I am a new creation! Thanks, Patsy!
