PostSubject: We are thankful ...   Fri Mar 21, 2008 1:23 pm

Many years ago... around this time... Jesus Christ died for our sins. His sacrifice for all of us means more than words can express. His death for our sins was the ultimate proof of love. Let's not forget what He did for us.



What does his sacrifice mean to you?
Because we are all imperfect… I still sin once in a while, we all sin once in a while… but thanks to Jesus’ sacrifice I can be forgiven for my sins if I am truly sorry. There were times when I tried hard to fit in and sometimes I chose to do bad things over choosing to obey God, I felt like it was fun to sin and that it made me happy, but I learned that .... that type of happiness doesn’t last very long. It’s always better to try and choose eternal happiness over anything this world has to offer.

It never ceases to amaze me how deep God's love runs for us. Even when we are undeserving, we have His unconditional love, understanding, and compassion. I feel unworthy of it often; but thankfully He knows who He created me to be, and through prayer and petition, I can work on becoming that person, knowing each day is a fresh start in His eyes.

That was a beautiful post, Carol. Yes, thank you!

I was supposed to go to church tonight, but the roads are too slick to even attempt it. I went for Holy Thursday, so at least I was able to go one night. I may watch the Passion of the Christ tonight though. I've only seen it once though and I feel like I need to 'pysche' myself up for it because it is just so emotional. My husband doesn't want to watch because he says it's too graphic, and I remind him of all the "Holllywood" graphics out there...this really happened to Jesus Christ! He did this for us! That movie is such a great reminder of how much He loves us, and it's important for we Christians to prepare ourselves for the most important day of the year, Easter Sunday, in any way before the day comes...whether through church, religious movies, or prayer.

Thank you for the reminder, Carol. Easter brings about such a sense of peace for me. It is so much to understand, that the Lord loved us so much - all of us, people who would come thousands of years after the fact - that He suffered so much to save us. Even when we make mistakes, He still loves us perfectly and unconditionally.
