Reflection of the week

Posted in Faith

As Easter approaches, with its incredible story of sacrifice, redemption and resurrection, I am challenged by the words of Jesus to Martha: “do you believe?”

I know what I do not believe – Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, even UFOs.

I was not an eye witness to those historic events, but i take a leap of faith, to declare with Martha: “yes, Lord, I believe” (John 11:1-15).

By God’s grace, I can experience the miracle of redemption myself, then I can assert that I believe in the Risen Christ’s power over sin and death. I believe in his claim that he is the Resurrection and the Life.

Prayer

Lord, I look forward to hearing, once again, the account of the drama of the Cross. Open my inside eyes, that I might experience the wonder of your sacrifice for me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
