As we begin to approach Easter this Sunday, we can get a little excited. Maybe not super excited, like when we were little kids, but a little excited. You probably secretly enjoy getting some candy, or being with family and eating some good food to celebrate.
But Easter is a lot more than just some tasty candy stuffed into an easter basket. It’s really about love.
God had a plan from the beginning of time to send Jesus for us. Check out today’s verse.
For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus. – 2 Timothy 1:9 (NLT)
We didn’t deserve God’s love. Yet, He showed it to us in the greatest way possible, by sending His son Jesus to pay the price for our sin.
God planned this before the beginning of time because He loves us. He wants nothing more than a deep and fulfilling relationship with you. So in the midst of the tasty food and lots of candy this Easter, don’t forget that you didn’t deserve Jesus. But God loved you so much that He sent Jesus anyway.
That’s the good news of Easter!
