Sunday was Easter.
On Easter, I participated with around 5000 other at my church site alone in the worship of a God who is alive.
The message of Easter hasn’t changed. The days change, but the message doesn’t.
Do the people I come in contact with know that?
Oh, they most likely know I’m a believer because I have no problem sharing about what God has and continues to do in my life. And, I am not shy about proclaiming my love for Him.
But do I give them the opportunity to experience all that I talk about for themselves?
- Am I kind?
- Am I compassionate?
- Am I encouraging?
- Am I forgiving?
Thankfully, God loves me even when I’m not these things. But when I’m not these things, it makes it hard for others to believe that I love God.
The power of the cross and resurrection lies in the fact that He love us so much, he relentlessly pursuits us. He demonstrates His love for us over and over.
It’s not about dying for what we believe. People do that every day for all kinds of beliefs.
It’s about living out the message of Easter, the message of His hope and love for His people every moment of everyday.
Someone needs to experience Easter today.
Someone needs to experience Easter tomorrow and the next day and the next.
The world will know us by our love for each other. Rather than proclaiming our love of God with our mouth’s, we need to proclaim it with our lives.
“Preach the Gospel at all times, and when necessary, use words” (Francis of Assisi).
I invite you to join me in this, and let’s “go love on somebody” (Eric Simpson) today.
