Each year I see them peeking through the lingering snow – the red buds on the large tree outside my window – and I know Spring is near. Not long after, the robins return to our backyard with their morning chirping, and soon the green tips of our tulips will push through the water-logged ground.
Spring equals new life here in the Midwest. And each year it seems as though Spring prepares the way for Easter Sunday, the celebration of a living Savior who came to bring us new life!
Yes, the free gift of salvation is well-celebrated during Lent and the Easter season, but how often do we forget the joy of our salvation in the busyness and mundane moments of everyday life? I know I’m guilty. It’s easy to forget the miracle and power of our spiritual rebirth, isn’t it?
If we can’t be excited about our own faith, about God’s free gift that none of us deserve, then how can we expect others to be interested in it?
With those thoughts in mind, I’ve collected a dozen verses for Easter meditations.
