The Love of a Loving Savior
In fulfilling the scriptures, Christ became the sacrificial lamb for the world. The love of Jesus and our belief in him provides for us an earthly and heavenly life with his constant presence, and a life full of joy and hope that dwells within us and sustains us. Christ demonstrated that we can have confidence in his word and in his promises.
In this Lenten season, we have the love and an anchor that we can look to with assurance that he loves and cares for his own. So let us rejoice and remember, particularly during these times, to hold tightly to his righteous right hand.
For you and me, Christ gave his life and claims us as his own. He defeated the sting of death and he LIVES. He lives so that we can face tomorrow. We know he holds the future and life is worth the living because he LIVES.
Prayer: Jesus loves us this we know, for he has shown us and the Bible tells us so. Hallelujah to the King of Kings and thanks be to God for the love of a loving savior. Amen.
