Because of Him…Thoughts on Easter

Happy Easter to everyone!  I thought for my blog today I would take the opportunity to share a few of my thoughts about Easter and what it means to me personally.

I love Easter because it reminds me that at any point we can make the decision to be a better person and repent for our past mistakes and start over again with a clean slate.  We have been given an amazing opportunity, thanks to our older brother Jesus Christ, who gave his life willingly for each one of us so that we could be resurrected someday and have the opportunity to live again with God.  It was because of his great sacrifice that we are able to overcome our mistakes in life. All of us make mistakes, some big and some small. None of us are perfect.  But at any point we can get on our knees and ask Father for another chance to be a good person. We can ask for forgiveness for our mistakes and we can ask for help overcoming our weaknesses.  And He will grant us another chance to try again.  All of that because we had an older brother who was willing to sacrifice out of the unconditional love he held for each one of us.

Everyone deserves to learn from their mistakes and start over again.  Everyone deserves to improve and progress.  Thank heaven for the fact that we have that opportunity.   Every one of us should make sure we don’t take that ability for granted.  We shouldn’t let that sacrifice be in vain. It was meant for us.  Every single one of us.  So take advantage of it and start tomorrow with a clean slate and a commitment to do better.  And thank heaven for Easter!

This video below is absolutely amazing and totally fitting for Easter.  Its only 2 minutes and 44 seconds and it is well worth the watch.

Have a great week this week!
