He is Risen!
As I know we are all familiar with what a receipt looks like, there has never been one that stands out more to me than the one pictured above. Why? Because if you look closely you will see that it is a receipt for Eternal life. The debt has been paid. I didn't pay this bill the costs are way too extreme.... And that is coming from someone willing to spend A LOT of money on a pair of shoes. Thankfully, Jesus Christ paid for me.
We hear the same story ever Easter and sometimes I replay the story for others if I am witnessing to them but to this day it still brings tears to my eyes to think about how I could be worth all of that.
A man who could bleed and feel pain and love was betrayed, nailed to a cross, ridiculed and unjustly beaten. Even during these horrible events Jesus looked to the Heavens and asked his father to forgive them. If that right there doesn't explain the mercy of our Lord then I don't know what does. Again I ask myself... How am I, a sometimes spoiled 21 year old filled with sin and self righteousness, be worth this large of a payment?
The answer is simple: because we are the Lord's children and he loves us so unconditionally and wholeheartedly that he would allow his only son to die for us.
If that's where the story ended we would all be in serious trouble. Thankfully it continues! After the Lord was buried in the tomb and all thought he was gone for good, He rose again and defeated death! Death has forever lost its sting because now we get to share in everlasting life with our King!! It gives me goosebumps thinking about it❤️
I hope all of you have a gorgeous Easter Sunday spent with family and loved ones! Celebrate how great it is that He is Risen!
