Quotes to Enrich Your Easter were posted by Craig Lounsbrough, M. Div., LPC at www.craiglpc.com/quotes-enrich-easter/. The quotes were shared with me by Phil Miglioratti. I would like to share the points The Lord Showed me from these quotes and, where relevant, to what He specifically Led me.
Quote: “God did for us what He did not need done for Himself.”
He Led me to: God is so powerful, that He could Save us by telling us to eat cotton candy. He could Do It just by His Own Will. His Desire to save His creations is that Strong. But He knew that humans would never have believed that would work.
Quote: “Sooner or later I will realize that the very things I most desperately need are the very things I am unable to give myself.”
Quote: “I am wholly deserving of all the consequences that I will in fact never receive simply because God unashamedly stepped in front of me on the cross…”
Quote: “Perfect majesty that deliberately chose to be born into abject poverty, walk a road of perpetual poverty, and be unjustly executed in the raw nakedness of poverty is utterly ludicrous unless I realize that this is the single and sole way that God can reach me… “
He Led me to: God not only knew me before I was born. He also understood what it was to be human before Jesus ever set foot on the earth.
Quote: “And is it possible that God had to do the impossible to finally get our attention?”
He Led me to: YES! Even then many do not pay attention.
Quote: “There are an incalculable number of things within me that I frantically wish to be emptied of, and despite my most earnest efforts to remove them, they remain.”
He Led me to: 2 Corinthians 12:7b-9a. “Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’”
Then, in the silence, He Led me to: One of the things that needs #Reimagining among Christians is Easter Sunday Resurrection Celebration Day.
Gracious Resurrection Day,
