So often, when I’m working on something I love, there will be someone who asks “How can you do that? How can you remember?” When you love, you remember. It is that simple. When you love, you go deep. That love is in your heart and your soul. You can never be truly separated from what you love.
I think of this as I think of last night at church where we had a special service . . . the Service of the Nails. Powerful. It was all about repenting, reading the Word, praying, listening . . .
It is still with me today. I can still hear the nails being pounded into the cross. I still feel as though I’m there as they did this to a different cross . . . one on which my Jesus, my beloved, died. I feel tears and my heartbeat changes as I type these words.
Why did Jesus have to go? Why did He have to die?
We know it was about love. We’ve heard the words, sung the songs, recited the prayers, but sometimes this comes from habit and not from deep within. We get busy. We don’t stop a moment. We don’t stay with Him for an hour . . .
So, again, the question is why????? Why did He have to die?
Jesus had to die. He had to. It was written . . . it had to be fulfilled. He had to go . . . so that He could return to STAY. It’s really that simple. He died so that we could live eternally with Him. He died so that He could return to each of us DEEP WITHIN OUR HEARTS AND SOULS.
Jesus died so that He could return to us and this time
He came to stay.
Have a blessed Easter. May you let Him stay forever in you.
