Happy Maundy Thursday! As I noted yesterday, it sure doesn’t feel like Easter right now. That said, our present difficulties pale in comparison to the overwhelming sacrifice Christ made for us—and we didn’t deserve it at all.
The late Reverend Pete Cooper, who was once the ornery, cantankerous, and thoroughly lovable chaplain of my little private school, once made the point that Christ’s Crucifixion wasn’t merely excruciating in a physical sense. In that moment, He took upon Him the weight of every sin ever committed, before or since. Whoa—talk about a sobering realization.
Imagine—as impossible as it is—being completely without sin, and then assuming ALL of it—undeservedly. It’s the greatest act in all of history.
So, let’s not let The Virus get us down. Christ endured far worse. Humanity has endured far worse, for that matter. But we can be secure in our knowledge that our Savior watches over us, and is always with us.
Here is East 2019’s “He is Risen!“
Happy Easter to everyone! Today’s post is another short one for this important holiday weekend (it also marks sixteen weeks of daily posts—shew!).
Jesus Christ died for our sins around 2000 years ago, and was resurrected three days later. Today, Christians all over the world celebrate His death and resurrection, and eagerly await His eventual return.
According to Scott Rasmussen, 74% of Americans will celebrate Easter today, but only 40% of Americans will attend church (but, hey, that’s better than nothing). He also writes that 67% of Americans believe Jesus Christ arose from the dead—one of the more heartening statistics I’ve read in awhile, considering Pat Buchanan’s recent piece about our declining public morality.
Enjoy a day of fellowship and family. And if you have time, check out my old “Lazy Sunday” compilation of pieces about Christianity.
