Easter is less than three weeks away. As I sit here this early morning and think about the action that Jesus took for us, I am led to wonder if we ever fully realize the impact of His life and death. Rarely, if ever, are we as Christians called to physically die for our faith. However, daily we are called to die to the world and be like Jesus, letting His actions be our example of how we should treat others and live in this world. My mind immediately went to a verse that makes most of us uncomfortable at best. especially me. In Titus 1: 16 we are told “They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.” I do not like to think of myself in those words and want to believe they are not directed at me. But truth be known, they can be attributed to my actions all too often. I fail to help others daily, but He forgives. I fail to be the hands and feet of Jesus, but He forgives. I fail to be the Light of Christ in a dark world, but He forgives. I know that God loves me like I am, but He loves me too much to leave me that way. May each of us look to Easter morning and see a loving, caring God, and as we are told by Micah, wants us to “act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly” with Him. May it be so.
