Christ's Passionate Love = Joy of Easter

Have you had your Joy Juice today?  Be passionate about drinking your portion this week of Easter.

            May your Easter basket be filled to overflowing with JOY in the Lord…JOY in knowing that Christ died for you! JOY in the sacrifice Jesus made because of His passionate love for mankind. Remember, He loved you and me so much, he gave his life for the sake of restoring us to fellowship with God.

 Philippians 2:6-7 tells us that “he made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant by being made in human likeness.  His passionate love caused Him to leave the glory of heaven to take human form and live an obedient life of self-sacrifice required by the holiness of God. Jesus accomplished the requirements foretold by prophecies and the will of the Father.  All of this…for us! That’s the JOY of Easter. 

         The final words of Jesus from the cross were a triumphant proclamation. Like a runner crossing the finish line in agony, yet with great emotion in overcoming obstacles, Jesus said “It is finished!” (John 19:30) He had accomplished His purpose on earth.

                        Let's never take Christ’s passionate love lightly.  Instead of focusing on egg hunts, parties, and new clothes for Easter, let’s drink in the passionate love of Christ and experience the sweet aroma of JOY in His resurrection.
