I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
This verse my daughter and I especially wanted to share today following Easter Sunday.
The empty tomb at Easter gives my soul so much joy to focus on how He faithfully carried out His mission of redemption for His people.
I feel so profoundly and completely humbled by the fact that Jesus gave HIS LIFE for me. Me. A sinner. Broken. Yet He loved me so much to die in my place so I can live.
The joyful remembrance of the empty tomb highlights the awesome power of God over death and the assurance of eternal life for those who love God.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Were you able to attend church, or see family? The Holy Spirit reminded me of the joyful hymn AN CAN IT BE when I woke up yesterday. I hadn’t sung it in years but remember singing it with my family as a child. The words, “amazing love, how can it be, that thou my God shouldst die for me?” echoed in my mind as I watched the sun come up through the window!! I hope you have a moment to listen.
