Creation was perfect. But not for long. God knew.
He always does.
He knew there would be sin. He knew we wouldn’t be able to save ourselves.
Jesus was saving the world in the way God intended.
It was brutal. It was painful. It was a part of God’s plan for salvation.
Jesus fulfilled God’s promise!
Alleluia! Christ is risen!
He is risen, indeed! Alleluia!
Sometimes it is harder to keep our word than we can ever imagine. I’m know I have made commitments I have been unable to keep and I hate that. Even the best of intentions can be made without a full understanding of what the future holds. Of course, we can only plan to the best of our ability, but we should take very seriously the thought of a promise or commitment.
I am so thankful for God’s promises. He always follows through. He is always on time and He often delivers in unexpected ways.
Why would a Savior enter the world in such humble circumstances or die such a brutal death?
How could God work in and through a sinner like me to communicate His Gospel message to those in my sphere of influence?
How will He use my past in combination with my present to contribute to my future?
Today I am blessed to celebrate the resurrection of the Savior: The Promise Fulfilled. If God can make good on that level of commitment to me, I need to ask for greater trust that He can work out the other details of my life. He has already made the most important provision for me through Jesus. I think I can trust Him with the rest of my details.
He is Risen!
He is Risen, Indeed!
