Mart VanDeWeert- 2017

When Jesus entered the Garden of Gethsemane, He knew what was ahead for Him. The cup that He prayed for His Heavenly Father to take away was a symbol of deep sorrow and suffering that He had to endure. He had no sin, but was made a sin offering once and for all. He knew He was going to suffer unbelievable pain to the point He could not carry His cross; He knew He would be nailed to the cross; He would be separated from His heavenly Father, and give up His life for us. He ended His prayer with the words: “not my will but your will be done,” a tremendous example for all of us. What are looking ahead to this Easter season?

I am so thankful I grew up in a Christian family, and at an early age I was able by faith to believe Jesus was my only Lord and Savior. As I get older, I know my life here on earth will end, but I can look forward to living eternal life with Jesus. What a comfort this is. (The saying goes: “The old must die, the young can die.”) Whatever your age, if you know Jesus as the one and only Savior, you too can have this comfort. Have a conversation with Him. No appointment necessary, no waiting room, no paperwork to fill out. By the way, take your heart, soul and mind and give it all to Jesus. What a blessing to live with Jesus forever.

Jesus paid it all, All to Him I owe, Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow.
